We were quite excited to learn of the Lifecycle Building Center (LBC) and meet its executive director, Shannon Goodman and director of operations, Adam Deck.
The mission of the LBC is to make the lifecycle use of the built environment increasingly efficient and sustainable. This mission is enacted in three ways:
- through the operation of a retail building material reuse center as a workable and self-sufficient alternative to material disposal
- by using proceeds from material sales to fund grassroots community outreach programs that enhance resource efficiency in the built environment
- by empowering the community with the educational and experiential resources needed to effectively raise market demand for Green building goods and services
In other words, Lifecycle Building Center is a non-profit organization that diverts usable building materials from landfills toward opportunities for reuse and and empowers homeowners (and businesses) to implement energy-saving, sustainable solutions.
We think that’s awesome! We hope to, in the future, showcase their efforts further. So keep an eye out for more about Lifecycle Building Center!
