DeConstruction Services, LLC based in Fairfax, VA is an environmental company that specializes in the disassembly of residential and small commercial buildings throughout the Washington, DC metropolitan area. It assists the building owners in donating the salvaged material to nonprofit organizations that sell it for drastically reduced prices to re-modelers, landlords, and homeowners of all income levels for renovation and economic development needs. In the process, DeConstruction Services, LLC seeks to recycle or reclaim for reuse approximately 80% of the structure, save the property owner expensive debris hauling and disposal costs, provide trade skills and permanent employment for at-risk workers, and enable the donors to earn a significant tax deduction for their donations.
Our mission is to share knowledge through the reuse of books. We rescue and redistribute books to people in need. We believe that access to information empowers people.We try to do our best with each book given to us. If it is suitable for our international beneficiaries, it is sent to Kenya, Zambia, or the Philippines. Our recipients do not pay anything to receive books from us. We are the founding contributor to the first free library in Nairobi. (How cool is that?) Also, our beneficiary partners ship to India, West Africa, and Honduras. Our primary means of raising funds is through our online Amazon store. Our secondary means of raising funds is through your monetary donation. 100% of monetary contributions go directly to mission. We are a 501(c)(3) organization and donations are tax-deductible.Books that are neither sold nor sent, are distributed at local fairs for free. We are seeking new venues for local distribution. Can you help? If absolutely necessary, we will recycle a book for its paper.Please, support our cause today!

A Buddhist conservation group focused on ecological restoration.
Founded in 1997, the Earth Sangha is a nonprofit public charity based in the Washington, DC area and is committed to practical environmental action as an expression of the Buddhist way of life. (Sangha is a Buddhist term for congregation or community.) We work in the spirit of Buddhist practice, but our members and volunteers come from a wide variety of religious and secular backgrounds. In the Washington area, we operate an ecological restoration program to restore native forests and meadows, stabilize streams, and control invasive alien plants. We also work with local schools on environmental education and schoolyard greening projects. All of our DC-area work is designed for public participation, as a venue for environmental education. In the Dominican Republic, we operate the Tree Bank Hispaniola, an agroforestry program designed to improve the lives of farmers along the central-northern reach of the Dominican Republic-Haiti border, and to restore the region's native forests.
In addition to environmental work, we host weekly meditationsessions in Alexandria, Virginia, along with discussions of the Dharma (the traditional Buddhist teachings). These sessions are free and open to all.
