Today is Earth Day, one of our favorite holidays here at The Refinishing Touch. Each year we take time out of our busy schedules to consider all of the ways the natural environment helps sustain our work – and how we can help sustain the environment.
As a reader of this blog, you might already know that we take the environment seriously – especially when it comes to furniture asset management within government edifices, universities and hotels. We wrote a guest blog for The Professional Housing Management Association, which described three ways you can be an advocate for sustainability in the built environment by becoming a green building champion.
Whether you work for the government, a university or a hotel, furniture asset management reduces carbon emissions by as much as 99% and prevents landfill waste. Just last month we completed a project at The Michaelangelo hotel which produced zero wood waste – a very important milestone for us at The Refinishing Touch.
It’s important for us to recognize these contributions to the environment not just on Earth Day, but through the year as well.
