Becoming a corporate sponsor will increase your company profile in the community, support creative learning, enhance recycling opportunities and reduce landfill.

For businesses, The Creative Zone may be able to offer a cost-effective alternative for surplus product or materials destined for the garbage. Unsure if we could use your materials? Give us a call, and we’ll advise if we can offer your materials a new home at The Creative Zone! If it’s a match – we’ll arrange pickup.
