 What is the Green Chair Project?

The Green Chair Project, a 501(c)(3) non-profit, was created to provide the Raleigh community with a meaningful way to recycle their gently-used household furnishings directly in to the hands of those in need filling homes that would otherwise be without, while at the same time reducing waste in our landfills.

Referrals from other local non-profit agencies help identify those in need, who may benefit from a hand-up to establishing new lives in a welcoming home.

Some interesting facts that demonstrate the needs that The Green Project help address:

Nearly 80,000 residents (8.8%) of Wake County are living at or below the poverty level, unable to purchase even basic items for their homes.
According to the EPA, furniture accounts for over 9 million tons of waste in our landfills.
The Green Chair Project needs you!

We count on you to help us spread the word to your friends and families, so they will know we are here when they are ready to redecorate, downsize, or upgrade their furnishings. Thanks for passing the word all around Raleigh and Wake County!
