Eco-Friendly Office Furniture

In our experience, companies that are trying to decrease their carbon footprint often find that furnishing their office space with eco-friendly office furniture is one way to do so. “Green” furniture is typically made with recycled, sustainable materials that pack low chemical emissions. Many office furniture manufacturers offer eco-friendly options.

HON 94000 Series Double Pedestal Desk

Let’s take HON for example. This office furniture manufacturer takes pride in thinking green. Materials used in HON furniture are carefully chosen with the environment in mind. In HON’s manufacturing systems, raw materials are used to ensure natural resources are being efficiently used. In addition, HON “carefully selects materials that minimize indoor air emissions and maximize users’ ability to return materials to the resource stream after they’ve served their intended purpose,” as noted on HON’s website. HON’s 94000 Series Double Pedestal Desk pictured right, is just one of the pieces of eco-friendly office furniture HON makes. It’s SCScertified and contains 77 percent pre-consumer recycled content, three percent post-consumer, and 45 percent total recycled content. SAFCO is another manufacturer that offers planet-pleasing furniture. Two products that caught our eye include SAFCO’s:
