Environmental Impact

Recycling paper, glass, metals and other everyday products is now standard practice in many homes and offices across the United States.  Many consumers are not aware, however, that office furniture can also be a recyclable product.
 
Think about it. The basic structure of most office furniture has a long life span.  Instead of wearing out, office furniture is often replaced because its finishes are outdated and a spruced up look is desired.   In the past, an office face-lift or a new color scheme meant that old furnishings were given a life sentence in storage or doomed to the dumpster. 


But not anymore.  Today, remanufacturing diverts worn office furniture out of the solid waste stream and back into the consumer market by restoring it to a “like new” condition.   Worn parts are replaced, storage units are repainted, panels are reupholstered, and desktops are refinished or replaced.  Furniture destined for the landfill is instead looking and functioning like new again.

Remanufactured office furniture offers an attractive alternative to purchasing new products.  Whether you’re having your own furniture remanufactured, purchasing “new” remanufactured furniture or some combination of the two, you can be assured of a quality product, cost-effective product and possibly most important, an environmentally-conscious product.    What’s good for the environment can be good for your business!

 
The amount of labor and energy required to alter an existing product during remanufacturing is 85 to 95 percent less than required to manufacture a new product.
