It’s Green Monday once again! We especially love this day, and we always look forward to a week of awareness regarding our environment and news about the efforts of our industry partners and what they do to help. Last January 29-31, S2 partnered with Mountain Re-Source Center and Tile Partners for Humanity on a recycling initiative focused on post-show product donations. It was a tremendous success and we congratulate all the organizers and exhibitors for a job well done!
With 82 participating exhibitors, Hanley Wood Exhibitions is very satisfied with the growth of this initiative and could not have had such vast success without the help of Freeman, United Services, and Mandalay Bay Convention Center.
Mountain Re-Source Center solicited all S2exhibitors prior to and during the show. The participating exhibitors were very generous, offering thousands of square feet of material which filled seven 53-foot semi-trailers to capacity, more than doubling the donations from last year’s inaugural initiative. The loads were delivered to River Valley Community Outreach Center in Gridley, California, Central West Virginia Outreach Center in Gassaway, West Virginia and Las Vegas Habitat for Humanity in Las Vegas, Nevada to serve multiple families and community improvement efforts presently underway.
S2 exhibitors graciously participated in this significant and impactful program. Companies of all sizes actively participated with some of the major donations coming from:
Beaulieu (9,000 square feet of carpet and padding)
Mannington Mills (9,000 square feet of flooring)
Home Legend (5,400 square feet of flooring)
Nature Flooring (3,500 square feet of flooring)
U.S. Floors (2,500 square feet of flooring)
Max Windsor (2,500 square feet of flooring)
IVC US, Inc. (2,500 square feet of flooring)
Johnson Hardwood (2,250 square feet of flooring)

We hope this starts a trend for exhibitors everywhere around the world. Congratulations to SURFACES!
