In design and construction, the opportunities to “give back” can happen on many levels. Careful consideration can be made regarding where products come from, what they are made of, and how they’re made. Building materials, fixtures and furnishings that are being removed for a renovation, can be donated and repurposed, enhancing the personal spaces of those who otherwise may not afford these items. Moving or updating a home is also a great opportunity to consider what items are no longer being used, that can be donated to those less fortunate.
Trish Becher Design gives annually to these two great community causes, and encourages the repurposing of furnishings, fixtures and reclaimed building materials.
