Reuse, Recycle, RE:STYLE
Reuse, Recycle, RE:STYLE is a new program that introduces eco-friendly, resource-saving practices as part RE:STYLE's service to clients. Many green principles are inherently a part of what RE:STYLE does when staging a lived-in or vacant house, which makes this program a good fit.
We reuse as much of the current owners furnishings as possible, saving home sellers another kind of green (money). And over half of RE:STYLE’s $65,000 worth of staging inventory is recycled—meaning, we purchase from resale and consignment shops, as well as from furniture rental companies. We even reuse the bags we get when we do purchase new items—they serve as packing materials for the accessories we bring to jobs.
Each quarter, RE:STYLE will donate a portion of every hands-on staging project to an eco-conscious concern.
Here is a Recycle Livingston volunteer, and Kathi as she makes a recycling run as part of the Reuse, Recycle, RE:STYLE program. Did you know that Styrofoam (polystyrene foam) must be kept separate from other plastics? And newspapers must be in brown paper bags? Just a couple helpful recycling hints…
Kathi Presutti, owner of RE:STYLE LLC, presents a check for $250.00 to Linda Berch, Director of Recycle Livingston, as part of RE:STYLE’s new Stage-It-Green program.
