Sustainable Materials for Building
SOURCES OF SUSTAINABLE BUILDING MATERIALS:
Habitat for HumanityHabitat "Restores" are also used by Habitat affiliates. Restores are warehouses where parts of deconstructed buildings can be taken for resale. There are also new items donated by companies that may be last year's model, or a discontinued or overstocked item. These are made available not only to the Habitat affiliates but to the public as well. These stores especially help low-income families and rental property owners improve their houses. The sale of these donated items brings income to Habitat to construct more houses, helping other low-income families who qualify for our no-interest loans.
