Loose Parts and Natural Materials

    I've seen a lot of Kaplan, Lakeshore, Community Playthings and Kodo, which are all great. However, I'm looking to make a large purchase of loose parts and natural material play items. I'm sure others are looking for the same. Who has some great resources to share?

    Find a reuse store using this link: https://www.artofrecycle.org/our_neighbors.html. I visit the one near me frequently for bottle caps, corks, and other odds and ends.

    We have a wonderful couple of recycle centers in our area. I have a brand new building that we are opening with 8 classrooms. I have a partnership with two local recycling art stores searching for materials but I was wondering if there are places to order "bulk" materials as well.
