“Did you know that over 16,500 tons of building material are thrown out every day in New York City? These materials are clogging our landfills, releasing carbon into the atmosphere, and creating a need for more materials to be manufactured. Reuse is a logical and environmentally friendly alternative to discarding durable materials. Reuse just makes sense, economically and environmentally.” (from http://www.bignyc.org/whatwedo)
