Save A Sample! is a non-profit, nationwide recycling drive that makes it easy (and fun!) for designers to donate materials and samples to local design students preventing "tons" of materials from going to landfill.
Save A Sample! gives “another life” to manufacturer brochures, fabrics, finish cards, and other loose samples. Architecture and Design Firms around the country donate materials, which are then distributed to design schools. As a result, design students have a much richer set of resources to choose from during the year. Save A Sample! participants also raise money to fund scholarships which help design schools support work-study resource librarian positions.
