PATH is dedicated to sustainability and wanted to do more with their unused items than just add them to a landfill while others are in need
Washington, DC (PRWEB) February 24, 2011
After recently moving, PATH worked with Etreev to find resourceful solutions for their excess office furniture and equipment, getting into the hands of deserving charities like Montgomery Coalition for Adult English Literacy (MCAEL), Habitat for Humanity, Inspired Teaching, SOC Enterprises, StatAid, Bridges Public Charter School, Communidad de Fe, and Food Research & Action Center (FRAC).
As politicians work to balance the nation’s budget, it is painfully evident this will require tough choices and budget cuts to good community programs, causing greater need for many area non-profits. Being a non-profit, PATH understands the importance of being resourceful and responsible with excess. PATH is an international non-profit dedicated to improving health around the world through technology, education and the development and implementation of innovative solutions.
Jana Asher, Executive Director for StatAid said, “But for your generosity, we would have had to expend significant funds for that much-needed table. Your contribution allows us to directly support the programs and services we provide to carry out our mission.”
“PATH is dedicated to sustainability and wanted to do more with their unused items than just add them to a landfill while others are in need,” said Gregory Korthase, President of Etreev. According to Mr. Korthase, over 32 tons of material was diverted from the landfill and over 76 metric tons of greenhouse gases were eliminated by purposing the furniture for reuse and recycling, as opposed to disposal. Every American produces an average of 4.5 pounds of waste a day. This collaboration allowed PATH to reduce the equivalent of waste produced in a day by 13,696 people.
Etreev is a local sustainability consulting firm committed to saving customers money, time, energy and helping the environment by making reuse easy.
