WASTE NOT, WANT NOT

As a principled company, PLYWERK adhere's to strong moral business practices. First of all, we only use sustainable, eco-friendly materials in our production process. Secondly, we've strongly commitment to powering our day-to-day operation with 100% clean solar energy, but it doesn't stop there. There's a third and equally important step that we're excited to discuss, and that's the donation of our leftover wood materials.

After all the cutting, sanding, and printing, what's usually left over are random mismatched pieces of wood varying in sized condition. While most people would normally just chuck all of this scrap in the trash, we started scratching our heads with new ways to create a use for these left over pieces of wood.

Many of our left over scarp are full sheets of plywood with a litany of squares cut out that we use to fashion our wood canvases. These large structures are donated to our local Habitat for Humanity, a charity organization that builds homes for those in need. Habitat for Humanity uses the oversized scraps as trellis' for their gardening projects, and whatever cannot be used is sold by the organization so that the money gained can help even further.

On a smaller scale, given our passion for creativity, smaller, manageable sized pieces of scrap wood are sometimes donated to artists. These makeshift wooden canvases are not only wonderful for established artists, but for growing ones as well, that's why we also donate these pieces to local elementary schools for their students to use.

While we've discovered these new and exciting ways to repurpose our left over pieces of wood so that nothing goes to waste, we're always on the lookout for new avenues and causes in need of donations. For those interested, feel free to contact us and we'll gladly work with you in our on going effort to operate responsibly as an eco-concise business.
