our model relies on collaboration and partnership. we proudly work with these wonderful partners, and others, around Denver & beyond.
TheBigWonderful is Denver’s most original urban market and festival offering BEERFEST, BLUEGRASS, and BAZAAR in one elevated experience. Founded in the RiNo Arts District in 2014, TheBigWonderful is a cultural barometer and creative business marketplace, bringing together the best of Denver’s vibrant craft vending, food, beer & live music scenes into an eclectic and fun festival atmosphere.
TheBigWonderful is committed to and proud to be one of the most sustainable festivals in the Mile High City. Beginning in 2015, TheBigWonderful welcomed Lyndsey Manderson, owner of Zero Market, to host her first shop and she helped to build our sustainability program. Lyndsey now has a location in Stanley Marketplace featuring local, organic & toxin-free goods for an everyday sustainable life. In 2017 TBW grew its program with a partnership with Scraps to make its festivals more waste-free than ever! For all events in 2018 and beyond, TBW food trucks and bars will be using compostable items, with Scraps on hand to sort, weigh, compost & recycle. Together, TBW and Scraps have already diverted more than 9,000 pounds of compostables and 6,000 pounds of recyclables from the landfill! We look forward to continuing to build and grow our sustainability program in 2018 and being Denver’s environmentally responsible local market.
This non-profit advocates for more, better & safer cycling options in the Mile High City. Whether you're a bike commuter, recreational cyclist or bike-based business (we're all three!), or just someone who believes that a sustainable city needs more pedal power, BikeDenver is the group to join! Help advocate for a bikeway system that truly serves our growing Denver community.
Scraps will continue to support BikeDenver as we grow our pedal-powered services!
Denver Food Rescue is improving food equity & access in Denver, one bike haul at a time. This is another pedal-powered nonprofit that Scraps loves to support, one that's inspired us as we grow as a small company. DFR connects food donors (like grocery stores) to local nonprofits (like GrowHaus) who run "No-Cost Grocery Programs" in their neighborhoods, and brings them rescued food - by bike!
If pedaling for compost isn't your thing, consider volunteering with DFR to rescue food, or become a member!
Front Forty Foods
Front Forty is a new concept for bringing fresh, healthy, local, eco-conscious food to the market. Each dish is made from wholesome, locally-sourced ingredients, and packaged with completely reusable jars, bamboo utensils and cedar planks (take them home or leave them for Front Forty to reuse!), and/or compostable containers. The flagship Front Forty "vending machine" is located at Stanley Marketplace in Stapleton, where $1 from each sale of its reusable tote bags will be donated to Scraps (and we're selling some too)! We are grateful and thrilled to have Front Forty as a supporter & friend!
