Earlier this year, we were contacted by Marina Seevak, director of the Neighborhood Children’s Foundation, about donating some of our leftover materials to The Beautiful Stuff Project, a creative re-use and recycling center in East Somerville. The non-profit collects scrap from local businesses, artists, and manufacturers and distributes them to teachers for use in the classroom.

As a busy studio, Nervous System is constantly generating “leftovers” (or “do-overs”), so it’s a real pleasure to see how the things we would normally throw away are being put to use by these creative young minds!
