Courtesy Save a Sample

Every architecture firm has a product library, so it follows that every architecture firm is overflowing with materials samples. With spring cleaning around the corner, consider sparing the landfill and instead donate those fabric swatches and marble specimens to Save a Sample. Since 1999, the program has redistributed 10 tons of materials from firms in Boston, Chicago, Philadelphia, New York, San Francisco, and Washington, D.C., to worthy design schools for students to use in their projects.
