Kansas City Environmentally Eco-friendly Sustainable Companies Here is a virtual high five to some green minded KC friends.

Kansas City Environmentally Sustainable Companies

We love Kansas City Environmentally Sustainable Eco-friendly Companies!  Here are some of our favorites:

Scraps KC 

Scraps KC has something for everyone.  It is a store full of recycled items from companies & individuals.  It is hard to describe all you can find there & you need to walk around the store several times to see all of it.  It is a teacher’s dream!  Here is a far from inclusive list:  poster board, pens, pencils, crayons, fabric scraps, tape measures, wood scraps, markers, folders, mobile stands, mannequins,  etc.  

Here is a picture of our latest purchase.  We purchased wood trays for samples, table holder, pool sticks, bent wrench, letters, folders, & mobile stand.

The pool sticks became our towel holders for our restrooms & the bent wrench will be the toilet paper holder.

Did we expect to find these items there?  Nope, but that is the fun about shopping in Scraps KC, you never know what treasure you will find.  

We also donated several fabric scraps.  They weigh your donation & send you a donation form later.  

Then, you have the homeless outreach done by Scraps KC.

Recycled Surfaces

Recycled surfaces was created to make marketable items from recycled glass that is recycled in Kansas City.  Ripple Glass has drop off all over Kansas City.  They continue to expand their collection area.  Much of the recycled glass goes into insulation.  In fact, they need more clear glass due to the insulation demand. So, when given a chance between plastic and glass, go with glass. Some of the colored glass is used for countertops, table tops & soon to be floors.  We have worked with them several times for glass conference tables and glass transaction counters.  This recycled glass table top is currently available for purchase.

The Chive Cafe & Market

This Farm to Market restaurant and Transparent Brewery is only 10 minutes from our showroom in downtown Grandview.  We were fortunate to visit the farm that will supply some items for the incredible menu.  The farm is truly sustainable.  From the no pesticides to the composting, Michelle Brown plans to keep this same focus from her farm to the cafe. They track the percentage of local ingredients. The week we checked it was 75%.

There will not be plastic straws.  You can bring in your own containers for left overs.   They have a weekly food basket with homemade soups, bread, and salad dressing.

Now, let’s discuss the brewery, Transparent.  Nolan and team work really hard to educate you about each beer. With the food and beer, you will enjoy your eating and drinking experience.

When you visit The Chive and Transparent, please check out the restaurant chairs. These were purchased from us. The chairs were upcycled from a local Overland Park company. We recovered them in a low maintenance vinyl. The pop with the stunning reclaimed wood tops from barn wood.

Laser Cycle

They sell remanufactured printer ink & toner cartridges. LaserCycle is head quartered in Kansas City.  They also have operations in California and Pennsylvania.  LaserCycle has been around for 20 years.  We give them a plus for longevity in an ever-changing technology world. They manufacture in the USA!  We love that & they employ 300 plus US workers.  They pay above average for manufacturing jobs.  The management team has been together for a long time & understands the cost of hiring and retraining folks.  For these reasons, they retain employees. 

There is a lot of good, but what we really love is their green remanufacturing process.  In a tour of their facility, we learned that an HP cartridge can be reused 2 – 3 times. When you purchase from LaserCycle, you receive a return label to ship empties back to them.

Another plus is the partnership with have with them on a couple of our products.

Urban Lumber

We have worked with Urban Lumber since they launched a few years ago.  We loved that they take trees that had been destined to become mulch and make them into sellable lumber.  Since the lumber doesn’t come from a mill, it is full of character.  Many of the furniture makers, we work with are also regulars at Urban Lumber.  

Here are some of our favorite pieces created from wood purchased at Urban Lumber.  

This reception desk has a maple transaction top.

Pantry Goods

We didn’t know about Pantry Goods, but a reader took the time to reach out us to share about this wonderful local Kansas City company. In her words:

It is a low waste shop, providing bulk bins, seasonally and locally sourced goods as well as reusable home goods. It’s a fantastic place!! The owner, Marcelle, is also wonderful.
