When a prominent bio-manufacturing company relocated its Bay Area headquarters to new fully furnished offices, it partnered with Green Standards to sustainably decommission the 300,000 square feet of space it was vacating. It was important to our client that their surplus furnishings would be kept in use and out of the landfill.
A Tangible Benefit for a Worthy Organization
Green Standards redistributed the surplus furniture to six local non-profits, including Tahirih Justice Center Bay Area. This organization provides free legal and social services to immigrant women and girls fleeing violence in California.
Tahirih Bay Area were pleased to welcome gently used ergonomic chairs, tables, desks and additional seating to expand their offices for their growing staff.
Thank you Green Standards for helping Tahirih Justice Center with these wonderful furniture donations and for offering us access to desks and equipment that would otherwise be way to expensive for us to purchase as a non-profit.– Morgan Weibel
