Episode 132: The Design and Build Industry is Fuelling a Culture of Waste (+ What We Can Do!) with Katie Storey
Did you know that 500 million tons of construction and demolition debris is generated annually in the US? Did you know that each year 12.2 million tons of furniture and furnishings end up in landfills?
Those are big numbers! The good news is that the Good Future Design Alliance is developing a solution. Founder, Katie Storey, joins us today for an interview to give us more information. In this conversation we talk about making the shift to a career you love no matter what stage of life you are in, the amount of waste in the design and building industry, the GFDA's mission to reduce waste, and the impacts if we don't change.
