Mission statement: “Who better to actively seek to protect the natural beauty of our world through recycling than those who work to make the world a more beautiful place.”

The Art and the Recycling Clubs merged in 2009 to form the Art & Recycling Club in response to a $10,000 grant awarded by the BP A+ for Energy program for the purpose of educating and initiating a recycling program for Cardinal Stitch. We have continued to support the recycling efforts of the school as well as to celebrate the visual arts through monthly meetings.
