….8,630 lbs of finishes have been donated to ZeroLandfill Twin Cities Site!!  The best part about this: That’s 8,630 less pounds that would have been added to a landfill.

 

While designers and product reps stare at the prime real estate that had previously been taken up by these old discontinued samples, they smile inside knowing that these have now been repurposed to gracious teachers, artist, and the public.  Who knew that you could create the game Memory from PLAM samples, or use old brick samples for landscaping?  How about cardboard tubes for bracelets?  There are many new uses for these old products that after a few ideas during Harvest, many individuals filled carloads with products.
