Recently named one of Bloomberg Businessweek’s 2012 Most Promising Social Entrepreneurs, PlanetReuse is working nationwide to help connect the design and deconstruction/demolition community to make material reuse easier. Today, roughly forty percent (40%) of landfill waste comes from building construction and demolition.
Make reclaimed material reuse easier and more people will do it, is the simple but revolutionary goal that drove the founders of PlanetReuse to create a new kind of company in 2008. Frustrated by the time and resources it took to track down salvaged materials for their own commercial projects, they took an entrepreneurial leap to uncover a solution for the built industry as a whole.
Initially an internet-based material brokerage, PlanetReuse has evolved into a consulting and brokering company focused on providing the insight, experience and materials its clients need. With a well-defined and efficient process, PlanetReuse expertly matches materials with designers, builders and owners to save projects money, serve LEED efforts and sustain the planet.
