In fall 2018, North Rowan High School was revitalizing its design centers and needed new furniture. Green Standards was able to help out by facilitating in-kind office furniture donations from one of its clients – a local, Fortune 100 financial institution.
Shot on location at North Rowan High School in Salisbury, North Carolina, we featured the school’s principal who shares her thoughts on the donations received.
Green Standards donated dozens of workstations that will outfit our design center to make these spaces come alive for students in a way that we wouldn’t have been able to do otherwise. Our school is in great need of an update. There’s so many priorities in the classroom that furniture is often at the bottom of the list. This could save us thousands of dollars that we can now use to better support our students in the classroom”

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 52,000+ tons of surplus furniture and equipment from landfill and donated more than $25 million worth of in-kind donations to 5,000+ non-profits across North America since inception.
The 52,000+ tons diverted equals more than 150,000 metric tons of CO2e emissions reduced with a 98.6% landfill diversion rate on more than 1500 projects.
