ANEW works with corporate companies to steward their surplus office furniture and other items away from landfill and back into their communities by matching these items to local organizations. ANEW educates through action by raising awareness of the social, environmental and economic benefits of this practice of Surplus Stewardship®. We are making a positive and lasting impact on society and the planet every day.
Working together, Toyota & ANEW create a sustainable Surplus Stewardship® solution. Over 50 local community organizations benefit from the partnership.
Toyota and ANEW team up to decommission the long-time Toyota headquarters in Torrance, CA for their relocation to Plano, TX. Working with ANEW, Toyota is able to maintain and exceed their sustainability and community outreach goals.
Chrysalis and ANEW Collaborate to Help L.A.'s Homeless and Unemployed
With the help of ANEW, Chrysalis can focus its resources on its good work in the community.
Los Angeles has the unfortunate distinction of the nation's largest homeless population, estimated at 58,000. Chrysalis helps people re-enter the job market with training and referrals. As Chrysalis President & CEO Mark Loranger points out, having a job is the most important step in getting a life back in order.
ANEW, who recently became a Radicle Climate Smart business, will be meeting with companies to discuss how to take responsibility for measuring their business carbon footprint and how to reduce it by taking actionable steps to minimize impact on the environment. They will share their practice of Surplus Stewardship, discuss ESG (a system for how to measure the sustainability of a company in three specific categories: environmental, social and governance) and meet with current ANEW sponsors such as HNI Corporation.

MillerKnoll announced new sustainability goals for 2030 to make a positive impact on the planet. The goals are targeted at reducing the company’s carbon footprint, designing out waste, and sourcing better materials. MillerKnoll has been an ANEW sponsor for 13 years. Together, they developed Full Circle, an exclusive resource recovery program designed for customers who are looking to avoid landfill when decommissioning furniture or surplus assets from a space.
We are doing what’s right.
ANEW educates by raising awareness about the issues regarding landfill and construction & demolition waste, a primary component of the waste stream. Our practice of Surplus Stewardship® diverts items from landfill and back to the community. Surplus Stewardship® furthers corporate citizenship, social responsibility and environmental sustainability. Our Sponsors enable us to continue doing our good work!
“Nearly ten years ago, Knoll and ANEW came together to form Full Circle, which was an industry first. Not only did we establish new industry standards for environmental responsibility, we made a very positive impact on major corporations in North America. We also made an impact on the lives of many of the recipients of the products that would normally go to a landfill; they ended up enhancing people’s lives. It’s been a wonderful partnership, and we look forward to the future.”
— Mike Benigno, Former Vice President of Sales, Western Division, Knoll

“[ANEW] takes Surplus items and brings them back into the community instead of going to the landfills. The first truck load came to Ohkay Owingeh and 6 trucks later it is still happening and we are so grateful to Rose and all their staff that they have come in and just given their whole heart and soul.”
