Calling all designers! Dust off those unused samples, it’s time to recycle! Save A Sample’s! annual industry recycling drive is coming to Canada!
Save A Sample! makes it easy for designers to donate materials and samples to local design students. Save A Sample! recycling drive takes place each year throughout the USA, saving “tons” of materials from landfill. This year Save A Sample! expands its sustainable mission to Canada.
“We’re going global.”, reveals Suzanne Swift, Save A Sample!’s founder and president of SpecSimple.com. SpecSimple.com, is the industry’s web portal for design industry information and the home of Virtual Library. “This fall, Canadian designers will have the opportunity to donate their materials to design schools and their students.”
“Arborite and Wilsonart are constantly producing fresh collections and sending out new samples,” said Teresa Gentile, marketing director at Arborite. “Through Save a Sample!, we are able to ensure that outdated materials go to a good home, exposing design students to these products as well as reducing waste and unused material.”
“Save a Sample finds dwellings for our unwanted extra finish samples, prompts us to go through and pack up our library clutter while feeling good about providing material for the next generation of designers,” said Yasaman Hoorazar, a designer from IA.
Save A Sample! Canada 2016 will take place in Montreal, Quebec, and Vancouver. ?To learn more about Save A Sample!, visit http://www.SaveASample.org.
