For over 30 years, The Refinishing Touch has been providing our unique service, and at this time every year, we stop and give thanks to the many positives we’ve been blessed with. We’ve attended exciting and educational events, swapped ideas with some of the biggest names in the industry, and our president Mario Insenga has spread his knowledge at various speaking events around the country.
We’re thankful for the positive impact our work has had on the environment and the economy. This year we’ve worked on projects
that have helped save over 15,000 trees that normally would be used for new furniture fabrication. Saving and beautifying existing furniture not only keeps treasured pieces of furniture within a family, but also saves our customers money in the end.
We’re grateful that our work has been able to educate those in the industry. Our television recycling program and survey helped inform over 100 U.S. hotels that televisions not only contain over eight pounds of lead and are more toxic than a carton of cigarettes, but that state and some federal laws exist surrounding the recycling of e-waste. There’s still plenty of work to be done, but we’re proud to say we’re helping get the word out.
It all wouldn’t be possible however without the help of the extraordinary people that make up the TRT team. We’re eternally grateful for their hard work and dedication and wish them, their families and our readers a safe and happy Thanksgiving holiday.
