Mission Statement

Preserve the Environment; Improve Lives. We are a volunteer-run 501(c)(3) that introduces businesses having unneeded items of value with nonprofits that put these items to use. Redirecting goods that have residual value away from landfills and into the hands of people that need a little help.

Description

Started when one of the co-founders was working at a hotel while in university, he stumbled upon a stack of mini-fridges that were on their way to a landfill because they were dented or scratched -- unsightly for the hotel clientele. He stopped the process & redirected the fridges to a local school and hospital. The idea was born: let's find other businesses that have things they no longer need -- items that still have "life" left -- and introduce the business to a nonprofit or developing community that will put the items to use. Voila -- Preserving the environment while helping improve lives.
