Recently, we were (pleasantly) surprised to hear we had won the National Demolition Association's Environmental Excellence Award. The award, which honors organizations that propel the field toward a more sustainably-minded future, was a great honor for us at PlanetReuse.
Part of the construction and demolition industry for more than five years, we've worked hard to make it as easy as possible for building materials to be reused and recycled. Being recognized for these efforts wasn't just a kind acknowledgement (which it was), but also a signal that we are headed in the right direction. A direction that will lead to more materials being reused, less needless landfill waste and buildings created with the environment in mind. We're excited to be a part of that path, illuminating the way to a brighter future and better environment.
Four other teams were recognized with the Award as well. The work they have undertaken is extremely inspiring and encouraging. Check out the sites below for a deeper look at their winning projects.
