For Preservationists, Every Day is Earth Day

Happy Earth Day!

Preserving built heritage is a good thing for many reasons, not least among them the environmental benefits of keeping a building in use. Doing so is not only in keeping with the Reduce, Reuse, Recycle mantra, but it also preserves the energy that went into its construction and keeps valuable materials out of landfills.

As  Carl Elefante famously said, “The greenest building is one that’s already built”.

Adventures in Preservation has been using preservation as a powerful tool for protecting the planet since 2001. Why not join one of our hands-on building conservation projects this year and help keep the Earth a little greener?
