As a whole, The Refinishing Touch would like to extend our congratulations to Marian Brown, who has been named the new director of Wells College’s Center for Sustainability and the Environment. The center was founded as a place for students and faculty to meet and address issues around ecology and ways in which to develop a more sustainable approach to living.
We’re delighted to see more higher education institutions taking a proactive approach to sustainability and having open forums to discuss issues, practices and solutions is a great way to interact and support the wider movement. As Brown observes, “sustainability is an educational and operational imperative – something that we all need to be learning about and doing”.
Over the past 36 years, we’ve worked diligently to demonstrate our commitment to sustainability and providing eco-friendly onsite furniture asset management services to higher education facilities across the US and Canada is just one way of greening college campuses.
Wells College ethos to balance considerations of the environment, society and the economy echoes our own sentiments regarding sustainability and it’s encouraging to know there are advocates that are keen to have these conversations.
