In a place like New York City, it’s nearly impossible to build something without tearing something else down. That means that a lot of still useful stuff is sent off to the dump while new construction material is shipped in from afar. This is not only wasteful, but it’s also terrible for the environment. Build It Green! NYC is a New York, NY based non-profit that is “working towards reducing the amount of unnecessary construction and demolition (C&D) waste clogging our landfills.” They do this through two stores that make Build It Green! NYC “New York City’s only non-profit retail outlet for salvaged and surplus building materials.”

BIG Opportunity

Every day thousands of tons of building materials are thrown out in New York City. A lot of it is reusable, which is why Build It Green! NYC exists. They salvage materials from buildings that are being demolished and take donation of surplus materials from builders, citizens, and anyone else who has useful stuff to get rid of. It all adds up to more than 75 tons of doors, flooring, sinks, bathtubs, toilets, lighting, windows, cabinets, furniture, and more for sale in Build It Green! NYC’s centers. That’s not the end of the environmental good that they do. The profits from the sale of salvaged and donated materials are then put towards environmental initiatives across the city. It’s a pretty cool model. If you want to be part of it, take a look at Build It Green! NYC’s Jobs page.
