With a home claim, contractors often remove building materials that are still usable. By re-using these materials, we can help the environment and reduce the production of new materials.
Co-operators, in partnership with Habitat for Humanity, launched the Co-operators Reclaim program in 2014. This unique program provides Habitat for Humanity ReStores with good-quality materials salvaged from a home claim. The ReStores then sell the materials to fund Habitat for Humanity building projects across Canada. It’s an innovative way to recycle yesterday and repurpose tomorrow through sustainable building practices.
The Co-operators ReClaim program is another example of our sustainability principles in action.
