We are a NEW nonprofit with an excellent reason for being: reduction of waste by creating awareness AND reduction of the sense of entitlement of having to have "new." In these economic times, we should collectively be OK using second-hand computers, furniture, labcoats, etc. in our schools, et al.
Everyone on our team is donating their time to get this puppy launched!
Our Mission Statement: The Sustainable Surplus Exchange was founded to support and build awareness of sustainability in industry by fostering the donation of non-used surplus assets back into the community for use, thus reducing the carbon footprint of waste, while balancing the economics of consumption.
Description: The Exchange supports the goals of the community to be ‘green and sustainable.’
The Exchange provides a service to help companies recycle their assets back into the community of non-profit organizations including but not limited to schools, colleges and universities, churches and community organizations; and secondly, for-profit, limited-fund (start-up) life science companies through the donation channel.
