ORG San Diego is GREEN!

Save Fifteen Days a Year and Live Sustainably with ORG Home Organization

San Diego, CA – Homeowners interested in healthy living and sustainability have an easy and satisfying way to help reach those goals. Living in an organized home relieves stress, and saves time and money. It also eliminates the need to consume fuel and make wasteful purchases to replace misplaced items that a homeowner actually has at home.

A 2008 consumer study by the National Association of Professional Organizers found that more than half of respondents would save upwards of 16 minutes to one hour a day if they were more organized. That translates into anywhere from two to 15 days a year being wasted.

Imagine having 15 more days a year to spend doing what you enjoy the most. Living a more organized life not only saves time, it’s a better scenario for mental and physical health than chaotically triple-checking rooms for a missing checkbook, or hunting for something critically needed. Homeowners that go from knowing “it’s somewhere,” to knowing “exactly where,” live a more efficient and less stressful lifestyle. If you’re organized, you’re already thinking sustainably. Sustainability is ultimately a quest to live in a healthier household, community and global environment. Being organized is a good start towards achieving that goal and is an element of living sustainably that is often overlooked.

Being organized can make a difference with something as simple as baking soda or cinnamon. It’s irritating to make a special trip to the store for something you discover wasn’t needed after all. With an organized pantry, you see what you need, so ingredients won’t be forgotten and won’t go to waste. “By having a well designed space, you gain efficiency and ultimately there will be less waste,” said Shanon Chilson, President of ORG San Diego, a company specializing in home organization solutions.. “It becomes easy to be a more intentional consumer – you can see what you have in your pantry, closet or garage for example, eliminating duplicate purchases. And by integrating organizing systems for recycling and charity donations, it makes the process simple and can become part of your daily or weekly routine.”

The solutions from ORG San Diego create efficiency and save space in a homeowner’s closet, kitchen, garage, pantry, laundry and home office. “Our organization solutions are custom-designed to meet the homeowner’s exact organization requirements, and also their aesthetic needs with a range of styles and finishes.” Chilson said. “We are also equally committed to providing the best home service experience our customers have ever had. With the combination of busy families trying to fit lots of “stuff” into their homes, people are screaming for help to organize it all. We offer smart storage solutions and so do some of our competitors. But none of our competitors can touch our customer service. Our pledge to each and every customer is to provide exceptional service from our first call to final installation. In that, we are unique.” Chilson said.

While ORG San Diego provides solutions that deliver a greener lifestyle for homeowners, ORG products are also manufactured with eco-friendly materials that are less impactful to the environment and healthier for homeowners. The ORG panels contain 100 percent recycled and/or recovered wood fibers, and are certified as compliant with the California Air Resource Board (CARB) Phase I emission standards. ORG panels are certified by the Composite Panel Association (CPA), the only environmental certification program that has achieved ANSI accreditation. ORG is also an EPP (Environmentally Preferred Product) Downstream licensed company, which demonstrates its environmental commitment by purchasing CPA EPP certified composite wood products. In addition, the particleboard sheets used in manufacturing ORG products are certified by Scientific Certification Systems (SCS) a leading environmental certifying agency in North America.

In addition, ORG products offer a lifetime limited warranty and can be reconfigured and repurposed, but they won’t have to be replaced, thus reducing waste.

ORG and its parent Windquest Companies practice sustainability, recycling 93.5 % of total waste, using high-efficiency lighting, and encouraging employees to bike to work and bring in material from home for recycling. Windquest also reduced its natural gas consumption by 50 percent by recycling warm air back into the plant through its dust-collection system.

With a focus on health and sustainability, the company contributes to the community by donating time, product, and financial support to organizations such as the American Cancer Society, Habitat for Humanity, Urban Youth Ministries, and Center for Women in Transition. Also, in 2008 ORG began making a donation to the Arbor Foundation, on behalf of each client who purchases an ORG solution, to plant one tree in their name. These trees help replenish our national forests that have been damaged by wildfires or disease, which in turn help purify the air and clean the water.

The solutions from ORG San Diego create efficiency and maximizes space in a homeowner’s closet, garage, pantry, media room, foyer, laundry, or home office. For more information, or to schedule a free in-home consultation, please visit or call (760) 233-1205.
