Featuring the donation of office furniture and the transformation of this Boys & Girls Club computer lab, offices and children’s space.
Shot on location at St. Alban’s Boys & Girls Club in downtown Toronto, Canada we featured Shawn Burgess and his thoughts on the impact of these donations on behalf of our corporate client.
“Working with Green Standards again has allowed us to have a great space for children and youth to come in and to manage. We can now focus some of that energy and time and money towards more meaningful tangible things for our participants within our programs. The donation has revitalized our space and transformed it.”

About Green Standards Ltd.
A Circular Economy-Inspired Office Solution
Millions of tons of office furniture and equipment are sent to landfill each year in North America. We’re here to change that. By working with forward-thinking corporations we’re able to recover usable resources and repurpose valuable products to the benefit of businesses, the environment and communities across North America.
Our team of environmental stewards has diverted 54,000+ tons of surplus furniture and equipment from landfill and donated more than $27 million worth of in-kind donations to 5,000+ non-profits across North America since inception.
The 54,000+ tons diverted equals more than 166,000 metric tons of CO2e emissions reduced with a 98.6% landfill diversion rate on more than 1500 projects.
