BIG! Compost

has diverted 267,230 lbs of food scraps and given away 159,240 lbs of compost and 49,620 lbs of mulch in 2013.

BIG!Blooms

has given away 5,345 pieces of retired lumber to build 2,226 garden beds in over 1,269 community and school gardens.

BIG!Gives Back

has given away $300,000 worth of materials benefiting NYC's community and environment.

Our diversion rate reduces climate change emission by 3,200 MTCOE which is like saving 360,000 gallons of gasoline.

Donate, don't dump!

In 2013, BIG!NYC diverted over 4,000,000 lbs of usable building materials from the landfill!

"We are a throwaway society, making, buying, and tossing out cheap, crappy stuff. Our landfills are loaded with stuff, which had we only made and bought higher-quality stuff, wouldn't exist. We have been led astray, humans. Luckily, there are still organizations dedicated to minimizing waste and artistic value, like the good folks over at Build it Green (BIG!) NYC" - created by http://www.theresident.net
