Save a Sample! Announces Sponsors for our 20th Anniversary

Formica Group returns as National Gold Sponsor

New York (Nov. 29, 2018) — Save A Sample!, a non-profit 501c3, makes recycling interior and architectural materials easy and fun! Design firms throughout North America donate their samples to local design schools, during Save A Sample!’s annual recycling event, redirecting "tons" of materials from landfills into the hands of talented design students.

Formica North America returns as Save A Sample!’s National Gold Sponsor for our 20th year anniversary. "As a global leader in design and manufacturing, we also recognize the important role we play as an environmental steward," said Amy Gath, VP Marketing at Formica North America. "We are proud to continue our partnership with Save a Sample! to ensure that unused samples get into the hands of future architects and designers as opposed to ending up in a landfill."

Save A Sample! announces our new “city” sponsors Transwall in Boston and Office Resources in New York. Transwall, a supplier and installer of floor to ceiling modular wall systems, “is excited to be a part of Save A Sample! again this year and sponsoring Boston for Save A Sample!’s 20th anniversary!,” says Britney Simone, Transwall Architecture and Design Sales Associate. “Not only is this event a great way for the design industry to repurpose and recycle old samples, but it connects us with the next generation of designers and provides them with much needed materials. We get to expand our community while lowering our carbon footprint.”

Office Resources, a full-service office furniture company and certified Knoll dealer recognizes that “sustainability is important to us here at Office Resources! Being a New York city sponsor gives us the unique ability to make a local environmental and educational impact”, says Charolette De Santis, Associate of New Business Development.

“Working alongside committed industry leaders allows Save A Sample! to help thousands more young designers grow each year while significantly increasing the amount of samples saved from landfill. At this critical time for our environment, never has saving samples been more important!” says Suzanne Swift, Save A Sample!'s Founder and President of SpecSimple.com.

Save A Sample! 2019 takes place April 2-4 and plans to hold events in 18 cities throughout the United States.

School and delivery teams sign up through February 28th. Design firm registration begins February 1st.
