Combining their responsibility to the community and their desire to be environmentally conscious, they have a program to reduce (or better yet, re-use) what they would normally dispose of... Early Childhood Resources has eliminated almost all of their cardboard waste by implementing commercial cardboard shredding equipment in its facilities to convert cardboard destined for the landfill into some of the best packing material available.
Competition typically demands lower costs and with it, labor intense jobs are being exported faster and faster every year. Early Childhood Resources, being committed to "Maximum Value," balances the demands from the marketplace with the practicality and social values of finding ways to maximize the capabilities of those in our community with developmental disabilities, and want to work! The program provides a stimulating and developmentally enriching environment. These individuals gain valuable social and work skills while earning competitive wages, and creating "Maximum Value" in their products.
Holds up reasonably well over time

I don't know if the one I have is the same manufacturer or not, since I've owned it for probably somewhere between seven and ten years now, but it is exactly identical to this one except the five left drawers are clear. How it has held up over the years: The plastic drawers are fairly soft plastic, so they may scrape on the rails they are mounted on if you load too many heavy things in a drawer, or just pull it open at too hard of an angle, so they can start to want to slide off of one of their rails after taking a few years of minor scraping. On the other hand, the softer plastic also isn't the sort where you would worry about shattering (unless it was crushed somehow) so it's give and take. Overall, a predictable and fairly minor weakness. The colors have also remained bright, although I haven't exactly left it in the sun, either. In a regularly lit room, I can't imagine this would occur. After all this time, mine definitely has developed a permanent lean to it, but then, it isn't strictly designed to hold anything particularly heavy, and at one point I kept all of my paints on one side (my mistake). The metal is hollow and lightweight, so this is also something to be expected over the years. There is not any rusting or discoloration on the chrome finish after all this time. The short of it is: you can expect it to stay in one piece over the years, but not without it sustaining a few injuries. It is a practical and functional piece, especially ideal for craft supplies (as long as they aren't heavy ones). If you are putting together a craft room or crafter's closet, something like this is a practical necessity.
Great little organizer

Probably like most women probably our closets are packed, that being said I needed something to put oxygen hoses medication for breathing treatments gloves wallets extra medication that doesn't fit in the medicine cabinet scarfs just extra odds and ends that just don't fit. So what I did was I put stuff in these drawers and then label them and I right under where my blouses are in my closet so it's easy to just roll in and out and get whatever you need from it. I'm considering getting the second one just to put my what I call "my play jewelry" as it is right now I have probably six jewelry boxes including two safes so one of those would be great to put jewelry that is not expensive, and again other things that you can find.

I have so many art supplies and I need all of them when I practice Zentangle. I use charcoal, watercolors, anything I can get my hands on. This stuff was everywhere. I finally found this item and decided it was worth a try. It is WONDERFUL! Now I'm organized and this item isn't bulky or cheap looking. It will suit your needs, trust me. If it can get me organized...well, just try it, you'll love it.
Very Pleased with picture perfect product!

Very Pleased with the Picture Perfect Product! So easy to assemble. Very Sturdy. Wheels are a nice touch and system works equally well without them. I left the wheels off and it slid under my craft table PERFECTLY! The Drawers slide nicely and the safety stop keeps them from falling out by accident, what a nice touch!

Easy to put together. Roll it out when I need office supplies. Slips right into the closet when I'm done. Keeps my desk from getting cluttered. The bright colors make me happy. Not made for really heavy items but sturdy enough for most office/craft supplies.
Better than I expected
Nicole from GROVETOWN, GA – Verified Buyer
It's a bit larger than I expected and mine is a charcoal grey color. The drawers are plastic so if you put too much weight into them, they tend to stick and will shave a bit as you pull them out or push them back in on the metal tracks. The top of the cart is metal with small holes all over.
Even better than I expected!

Purchased two of these to use in my craft room & the kids' playroom. Great for organizing coloring books, paints, etc. for the kids, but love them in my craft room--especially since they are mobile to any location that is convenient.
Shannon from Maineville, OH – Verified Buyer
This is by far the best purchase I've made this year. It was easy to assemble (dare I say fun!) and then I was able to organize ALL of my craft materials - stickers, stencils, paper, scissors, ribbons. EVERYTHING! It is amazing.
Great for organizing!
Liz from Goodyear, AZ – Verified Buyer
Love this cart, we homeschool and use it to keep our school supplies and workbooks organized. We have an additional one for craft supplies. They are sturdy and the drawer sizes work well for us, I have some of them loaded with books.
Great organization tool

I bought this for my daughter's room for back to school. It hold everything and looks great. I like that you can roll it anywhere in the room and its lightweight. I am NOT good at assembling but this was easy.
