Redirecting Surplus Furniture to Charity

ANEW is a national nonprofit organization that assists businesses in matching surplus furniture and similar items with nearby charities and agencies that need it. It serves as a sustainable alternative to common liquidation practices, and redirects useable goods and materials for repurposing.

Project Manager Dina Mancini used ANEW recently as part of a decommissioning project in Pittsburgh, PA, and was able to redirect 3.1 tons of office furniture away from the landfill. And Dina isn’t the only PJM to use the program. So far this year, Bank of America has used ANEW’s services on six projects, which has diverted approximately 15 tons of furniture from landfill and into a second life with a local organization. 


Dina's efforts exemplify best-in-class project management practices while making significant contributions to our client's 2020 environmental goals. Congrats to all of our teammates who have used this program so far. Well done!

Boon Economics: AIS Partners With ANEW

From ID DesignWire Daily:

Sometimes a surplus can be a burden. If your office is full of remnants of workplaces past, or if your company is overloaded with excess stock, there are far smarter solutions than just trucking them all


The Other Social Network

Colin Fanning in Metropolis Mag:

Sustainability is, by now, a well-embedded and highly visible part of public discourse. Buildings that breathe and cities that live are less science fiction than just plain science, and people are becoming more and more conscious of the impact their actions have on increasingly stressed ecosystems.
