PlanetReuse featured in Architect magazine!


PlanetReuse has been featured in the March issue of "Architect" magazine! If you keep reading just past the "Color Me Sustainable" and "A Plan for Haiti" articles, you will find in the culture section an article about how, "these matchmakers want to find the perfect used materials for your project." Featured in the piece are both the Principal+Founder Nathan Benjamin and Operations Manager Tim Bensman.

"The great thing about entrepreneurship is there's always a gap to be filled. Nathan Benjamin started planetreuse.com in January 2008 as a Craigslist/eBay-type site for reclaimed building materials that could be used in new commercial projects. He realized, however, that although the listings were diverting waste from landfills, they weren't addressing the communication gap between design and construction teams and the deconstruction/demolition community. So Benjamin and his business partner, Tim Bensman, became brokers for reused materials."
