How To Buy Cubicles & Save Money Today
EPA estimates suggest that 3 million tons of used office furniture is dumped into landfills every year. Not only does this add to an already growing waste disposal problem, but it also requires manufacturers to expend additional energy and raw materials producing new office furniture. Repurposing used office furniture reduces these expenditures. It is an excellent and very simple strategy, for making your organization more sustainable.
The impact that re-purposing preowned office furniture makes on the environment is so significant LEED points are now awarded to companies that invest in refurbishing existing office furniture and office cubicle systems. Points are awarded in resource and materials reuse and waste management. Your company can also be given credit for reducing volatile organic compound, or VOC, emissions.
