Save A Sample Expands

February 24, 2011

Save A Sample!, the design industry recycling drive, is expanding and can now be found in Boston, Chicago, Philadelphia, New York, San Francisco and Washington, D.C. Since its inception, Save a Sample! has helped design firms donate thousands of pounds of materials to local design schools.
 
"We've always wanted to expand Save A Sample!'s reach to benefit a larger number of design firms and design students," said Suzanne Swift, Save A Sample!'s creator and president of SpecSimple.com. "With the help of industry sponsors and local furniture dealers, we will finally be able to do so."

In addition to distributing samples, Save A Sample! has set up a scholarship program for participating students and prizes for participating firms. Since 1999, Save A Sample! has collected more than 10 tons of materials and raised more than $50,000 in scholarships.
