Interior designers and local volunteers will link up to keep thousands of pounds of sample finishes and materials out of our local landfill for the fourth year in row.
ZeroLandfill, put on by the International Interior Design Association, essentially “upcycles” no longer needed samples from design firms and dealers and creates an event where teachers, artists and the like can claim the items. “Last year we diverted 9000 pounds from the landfill,” Hummel Interior Designer Karen Hauser said. The group took it one step further in that the event also inspired countless people to re-use, re-purpose and re-invent perfectly good materials.
Already, designers and volunteers have helped move truckloads of materials from local businesses to the Business Interiors of Idaho Warehouse, where the event will be held on Saturday, October 10th from 9 a.m. to noon. The IIDA Northern-Pacific Boise City Center said they welcome crafters, inventors and do-it-yourselfers to come grab the free materials and are always accepting the help of ready-to-work volunteers.
