FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(Kansas City, Kan., Oct. 30, 2008) - The Planet Reuse Project in Kansas City, Mo., and the Greensburg, Kan., Arts Center, designed by the University of Kansas Studio 804, have been recognized for Lifestyle Building Challenge 2 (LBC2) Awards.
LBC2 is a partnership of EPA, the Building Materials Reuse Association, the American Institute of Architects, Southface, West Coast Green, and StopWaste.Org. The partnership invited professionals and students nationwide to submit designs that support cost-effective disassembly and reuse of building materials.
Project received the top award in the Professional Built category for their Material Reuse Tool. The tool is an on-line resource that provides homeowners, architects, deconstruction professionals and local municipalities with an industry solution to find, sustainably deconstruct and reclaim building materials. Planet Reuse has supported the reuse of more than 20,100 tons of building materials to reduce more than 2,000 tons of greenhouse gas emissions. The concept removes common barriers associated with material reuse.Read more...

We've recently released our 2.5 version. Unfortunately, the last build had a minor bug with the image thumbnails on the material listings page we're working on fixing this evening.
We believe that all of the issues have been captured and taken care of, but be sure to email us at dfox @ planetreuse.com or comment in this thread if you identify any other usability issues. As always, we welcome feedback and recommendations on how to improve the user experience over at PlanetReuse.(oh, and watch for the release of the online shop for our 3.0 version in January!)
