Calling all SEGD Atlanta members... Here's your chance to volunteer and give back, while networking with likeminded design professionals from IIDA!

In the design and construction industry, we find ourselves creating a lot of waste from expired or unused materials collected in our finish libraries that inevitably make their way to the landfill.

So we asked why not repurpose, or upcycle, these materials back into our community? Once unwanted materials can have a new life as free-source materials for educators and non-profit associations, or be transformed into works of art by artists and crafters.

ZeroLandfill is a program of BeeDance. For a fifth year, IIDA Georgia (International Interior Design Association of Georgia) has partnered with Wilsonart to bring the ZeroLandfill event to Atlanta. To date, we have helped upcycle more than 156,000 pounds of discontinued architectural and interior design samples. Help us beat our previous year totals by participating in the 2017 ZeroLandfill Atlanta event!

Donating Materials? Register under "Material Drop Off" and bring your discontinued or unwanted material samples to make our event a success!
