Aligning Social Sustainability Events in L.A. and O.C.
Environmental awareness, education and action are important in making sustainability attainable. As a leading manufacturer of commercial carpet, Bentley Prince Street is a company that has environmental education and awareness built into its culture and supports organizations that, through their work, are moving toward a more sustainable future within reach for all. ANEW is one such organization that practices this through their Social Sustainability® program, which is uniting social responsibility with environmental sustainability.
Bentley Prince Street will host two upcoming “Aligning Social Sustainability” events, one in L.A. and another in Orange County, which will bring the concept of Social Sustainability to life, aligning personal wellness, community, industry and environment. The events will celebrate the commitment and generosity of leaders from the architecture and design, manufacturing, real estate and construction industries, who have already done so much to advance the work of ANEW and the practice of Social Sustainability. Both events will also feature the premier of a new short documentary “ANEW doing what’s right with what’s left®” and provide opportunities for all attendees to learn how they can join ANEW in strengthening communities by giving back and diverting from landfills.
ANEW was founded by Rose Tourje, a prominent commercial interior designer who shifted her career focus toward “doing what’s right with what’s left” after realizing that great improvements could be made in surplus liquidation practices. ANEW helps companies develop strategies to match surplus office furniture, equipment and architectural materials from corporate facilities and warehouses to non-profit charitable organizations, public agencies and underserved communities worldwide. Though ANEW is comprised of only a handful of dedicated professionals, it successfully diverts over one million pounds of construction and demolition material from landfill on average every year.
Anyone interested in positive change and enjoying an event filled with sustainability, cinema, local food and organic spirits, is encouraged to RSVP by emailing [email protected], or by calling 800.423.4709 ext. 2577.
