Rose Tourje had wandered into the Earthships Visitor’s Center and met Alayne Meade. Alayne became as interested in ANEW as Rose became interested in the Earthships.

On February 2, 2012, I received a call from Mike, one of our service providers, who had been tasked with removing furniture from 17 private offices. This particular client had no sustainability mission in mind and Mike turned to us for […]
A large midwestern food company was clearing out a warehouse; they chose ANEW to repurpose their surplus. ANEW matched the surplus to a recipient, Bethel University. From Bethel’s letter:
Our most recent success story, i.am college track was an extreme makeover of two crumbling modular buildings at Roosevelt High School in Boyle Heights.
