In the process of setting up the new office space I've made probably about 20 trips to Build It Green NYC on 9th Street in Gowanus to pick up supplies, furniture, etc. I'm proud to say that at least 85% of the office set up is used or salvaged materials. Check out these shelves we built from salvaged scaffolding planks:
So in one trip to BIG last week I met the founder Justin Green and Jaclyn Jablkowski, communications manager and they suggested they may need lighting for their new event space. I excitedly volunteered to donate a fixture and they happily accepted! I'm so excited! Here are some pics of the new space they will be renting out to various groups for events and weddings. Here is a little preview, they are still working on it but check out what a cool space it is!
We found an old door to recycle into a chandelier and I will building it onsite since the door will unfortunately not fit into the van. But stay tuned for some video footage of the assembly soon!!
