Special E is a unique green business that "rescues" items which are left over from special events such as food, flowers, candles, linens, decor and more, then repurposes them in ways that benefit our planet and people in need.
The recipients of the items we rescue include hospitals, cancer centers, hospice facilities, nursing homes, assisted living facilities, homeless shelters, soup kitchens, food banks, military families, veteran's organizations, schools and art programs for disadvantaged, disabled and special needs children, disaster relief agencies, and a wide range of charitable and non-profit organizations.
The remaining items we collect take a slightly different path which benefits our planet. Rather than ending up in our local landfills, waterways and oceans or on a recycling barge to a far away country, they are redirected to a one-of-a-kind network of upcycling artists who will transform these materials into other useful products and give them a whole new 'repurpose' in life!
A lot of time and energy goes into planning a function that your guests will enjoy. Wouldn't it be great if you could pay it forward and do something meaningful after your event has ended that has a positive impact on the environment and helps others that are less fortunate than yourself? Well now you can.
What makes an event special? Some believe it's the venue you select or food you serve. Others say it's the ambiance of the room or the theme you create. At Special E, we believe it's what you do after your event that truly makes it special!
