In 2011, we donated $250,000 worth of materials and support local environmental initiatives, schools, non-profits, community gardens, compost programs, urban farms, artist groups, and so many more great organizations!
The type of projects we especially like to support include environmentally sustainable building projects, public environmental projects, not-for-resale reuse art projects that educate the public about sustainability, waste issues or reuse and work that will help spread the word about Build It Green!NYC.
