Mission Statement

Divert architectural and design materials from landfill and into the hands of design students.

Description

Every year, Save A Sample! creates a second life for unused brochures, fabrics and finish cards. Over the years, thousands of pounds of materials have been donated by some of the country's busiest design firms. Materials are delivered to local design schools with the help of local furniture dealers. As a result, talented students have richer resources to choose from during the year.

"Save A Sample! offers students access to the newest architectural materials and finish products available," says Linda Oshea, Design Chair at Kean University in New York. "I have seen great improvement in terms of creativity, innovation, and imagination on student material and finish boards since being involved in this wonderful program. It is like Christmas morning in the design studios when Save A Sample! boxes arrive at our school!" ‚Äč
