From trees to furniture: photos from the case study in reuse

| | Comments (0)
In early November, we featured an article by SAGE Ambassador and Sustainability Council member Cheryl Rusnak, "From trees to furniture: a case study of how trees from the Mansueto Library construction site were put to purposeful re-uses." Now, we are pleased to share even more photos from the project. All the credit goes to the committed folks at the Library!
