Sustainability Essentials Webinar: Circularity in Furnishings


Sustainability Essentials Webinar - Circularity in Furnishings
May 21, 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EST
Circularity in Furnishings
What we throw away is now the world's most abundant natural resource. Why aren't we using more of it as a production feedstock?  Furniture is a durable good - intended to last a long time. Why, then, do we throw so much of it away.  Join us for a discussion with Jamie Facciola, an award-winning social entrepreneur whose work on developing local solutions to circular economy challenges has been covered in BBC News, Fast Company and Greenbiz. She will share her most recent project, a photo mini-blog about furniture waste, and inspire us with a discussion. There is much potential in the opportunity to use what we already have, especially as we rebuild our economy in recovery from the COVID-19 crisis.

Content also includes a synopsis of GREENleaders, the industry's first certified sustainability training course. This webinar is intended to give participants useful information you can begin using in your business immediately as well as answer any questions you may have about getting the most out of SFC membership.
