Happy Earth Day 2020!
Happy Earth Day! It’s important that we never underestimate the smaller efforts to support a healthier planet!
SSDB has been deconstructing old houses – rather than just demolishing them – in order to pull out materials that can be recycled or repurposed. So far we have deconstructed more than 50,000 square feet of building materials and have diverted more than 3,875 tons of waste with the help of Recyclean.
YOU can do the same! Exciting resources such as The Evanston Rebuilding Warehouse, Salvage One, Great Lakes Yard, Rebuilding Exchange and even Freecycle will accept donations or sometimes even purchase your old cabinets, fixtures, plumbing, building materials and the like to reduce waste in landfills and help us all act more sustainably. Plus – they are really fun places to browse.
