Deconstructing Green – Recycle your entire Home

Interesting news story profiling the ReStore Home Improvement Center in Springfield MA. Instead of demolishing your old home and having the content dragged off to landfills, you can “donate” it to this non-profit company. ReStore will send workers to “deconstruct” your old home, taking it apart piece by piece. The material taken from the home – windows, doors, flooring, bathroom fixtures, whatever can be reused – will be sold by ReStore at its retail location. Very cool.
