Reuse of old office furniture
Reuse is our future. Earth’s raw materials are going fast. Reuse extends the life of things that have already been made – so it conserves natural resources and reduces waste and pollution. Reuse – including repair, rental, and repurposing – means good local jobs and keeps money in our local economies. And reuse saves money.
Here are a few facts:
- According to United States EPA estimates, up to 8.5 million tons, or 17 billion pounds, of office assets end up in US landfills annually.
- Waste management represents up to 4% of a business or organization’s costs.
- According to the Business and Institutional Furniture Manufacturer’s Association (BIFMA), $10.2 billion worth of commercial furniture and equipment was produced, sold and used in 2015 in the U.S. alone.
