What It Takes to Get in the Game

Quick Podcast with Cindy Plavier-Truitt and Jeff Carroll of Details, a Humanim social enterprise as they discuss the upcoming SEA Summit 2014.

9:00 AM - 12:00 PM, April 14 2014
Room 208

Recycling and deconstruction social enterprises are attractive to entrepreneurs and allies throughout the sector. They provide jobs to those facing barriers, reduce disposal cost, create positive environmental impact, and generate revenue by finding value in the waste stream. But what does it really take to get started? Join a group of rockstar deconstruction/recycling practitioners for a discussion on plain dollars and cents, risks, and next steps. You'll come away with new perspectives and a tool to anticipate profitability.



Precision Deconstruction & Innovative Reuse


Deconstruction is a growing industry with great potential for strong returns in social and environmental impact as well as financial profitability.  

Social Impact - Job Creation

  • Creates 6 to 8 times more jobs per project than demolition 
  • Provides an ideal entry level position for individuals who have barriers to employment
  • Creates more jobs through the resale of reclaimed material

Environmental Impact - Waste Reduction

  • A greener alternative to standard demolition
  • Diverts thousands of tons of waste from landfills

Financial Impact - Economic benefit for all stakeholders

  • Adds value through tax incentives benefitting the owner of a deconstructed home 
  • Creates the opportunity for profit which in turn creates jobs for people in need of economic opportunity.

It’s hard to imagine an industry that provides more direct social, environmental, and financial benefit.  It is a true triple bottom line social enterprise. Those are the kind of DETAILS we care about. 

We are proud to be partnering with Habitat for Humanity of the Chesapeake Restores for the sale of reclaimed material.
