College campuses have become influential leaders in environmental preservation and sustainability, which is one of the many reasons why The Refinishing Touch is proud to assist in the realm of dormitory and campus center renovations.
With a reported 21 million students enrolled in degree-granting institutions back in 2010, it is clear that presenting students with eco-friendly options, resources and curriculum provides valuable awareness. With the ever-increasing input from students, professors, and collegiate decision makers, green living has become a highly sought after trait within campuses.
Last month, Living Green Magazine took to its website to commend the ‘Greenest of the Green’. Five colleges were featured in a piece naming the top five eco-friendly colleges and universities in America. Those honored were the College of the Atlantic, University of Connecticut, University of California-Davis, Warren Wilson College and the University of Pennsylvania.
What these environmental establishments have come to understand is that going green is not just good for the Earth. The act of implementing various sustainable processes results in reduced budgets and energy bills, increased ROI, heightened property value, and higher student retention rates.
Since our inception in 1977, The Refinishing Touch has implemented its sustainable furniture asset management services, using our low VOC lacquers and eco-friendly materials, on college campuses across the US and Canada. Through the process of refinishing, re-upholstery and remanufacturing, renovations are completed without creating unnecessary landfill waste, all while drastically reducing carbon emissions and lowering costs.
