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.

All Furniture Installation http://www.allfurnitureinc.com/furniture-liquidation/ along with twincitiesusedfurniture.com is all about recycling and reusing office furniture it enables us to reduce our environmental footprint while making a positive contribution to our community.    It is a great way of finding use for old furniture and other stuff whether you reuse or donate it.  It’s also a way to save money on furniture for the budget conscious business and is the ultimate green solution.

Turn your creative energy into repurposed furniture and giving it a new function.  It can result in a very fun, funky, classic new look for your office.

Here are a few photos of how our customers purchased from our used showroom and with a bit of creative thinking and elbow grease they turned used into functional and fun!
