Save A Sample! Canada 2019 is Back in Five Cities Across the Country
SpecSimple.com’s non-profit North American recycling drive, Save A Sample!, is making its way across five cities in Canada. From September 18-19, Save A Sample! Canada 2019 will take place in Montréal, Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, and Winnipeg.
The drive encourages designers to donate materials and samples to local design schools, which redirects “tons” of materials from landfills into the hands of talented students.
“Students from the Cegep du Vieux Montréal are very happy with the samples you delivered to us last September. We hope to receive some again this year,” said Édith Mallet, Design Instructor, CÉGEP du Vieux-Montréal, Département Design d’intérieur.
This year, SpecSimple.com welcomes back Formica as its national sponsor. According to Christelle Locat-Rainville, Marketing Director at Formica Canada Inc, last year’s Save A Sample! project was successful and Formica Canada is pleased to renew their collaboration.
“Supporting the next generation of designers and protecting the environment are two core values for Formica Canada and we are very proud to participate in the Save A Sample! initiative, which combines the two. We wish the best to this new edition,” said Locat-Rainville.
Suzanne Swift, Save A Sample!’s Founder and President of SpecSimple.com, additionally states that Save A Sample! design firms and schools count on the support of companies like Formica “who are committed to both the environment and the growth of tomorrow’s designers.”
