CCAD students drop off materials at ZeroLandfill

The Interior Design program at CCAD helped this year with a national environmental and recycling cause called ZeroLandfill™ .

Held seasonally, ZeroLandfill™ is an award-winning reuse program that reduces pressure on local landfills by allowing companies in the architectural and interior design industries to drop off unwanted materials for local artists and art educators to reuse.

Interior Design juniors Carolyn Zurawka and Courtney Gula culled CCAD’s materials library and brought all unwanted or outdated materials to the drop location.

“ZeroLandfill is an opportunity for our students to give back,” said faculty Kelly DeVore. “They get to practice environmental stewardship for a space like the materials library that evolves and is constantly updated.”

ZeroLandfill™ has been recognized by Contract Design Magazines with an Inspiration Award for socially responsible innovation in the interior design industry. Since 2006, the program has recycled more than 300,000 pounds of materials.
