Green Recoverings goal is to inspire hotels around the world to consistently donate all gently used bedding, towels and any other usable discards to those in need, including furniture and kitchenware, thereby improving lives while reducing waste in our landfills.
We created an interactive map to identify and match Donors with Recipients and Volunteers. The map was made possible by VERTICES, a mapping company based in NJ. Click here to explore the full functionality of the map or browse the map below:
