SEGD Atlanta: Zero Landfill Volunteer and AfterSocial (Atlanta Brewing)
August 23, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
In the design and construction industry, we find ourselves creating a lot of waste from expired or unused materials collected in our finish libraries that inevitably make their way to the landfill.
So we asked why not repurpose, or upcycle, these materials back into our community? Once unwanted materials can have a new life as free-source materials for educators and non-profit associations, or be transformed into works of art by artists and crafters.
IIDA Georgia (International Interior Design Association of Georgia) is hosting the 6th annual ZeroLandfill Atlanta event with Wilsonart. To date, we have helped upcycle more than 209,000 pounds of discontinued architectural and interior design samples.
Help us beat our previous year totals by participating in the 2019 ZeroLandfill Atlanta event!
We’d like to encourage as many SEGD ATL members as possible to come out volunteer on Material Drop off day for ZERO LANDFILL 2019! This is a great chance to give back to our community and keep tons of discarded sample chips out of our landfills! It’s also the perfect opportunity to connect with other local members of IIDA (International Interior Design Association). Each volunteer hour can be self-reported as one USGBC CE hour to help you maintain your LEED GA or AP credentials.
Food will be provided during the Volunteer sessions and as a reward for your hard work, we will have a beer social just across the street at Atlanta Brewing (Red Brick) from 7-9. All SEGD volunteers are welcome to attend!
