With Earth Day just around the corner, there’s no better time than the present to green your workspace. Getting started is as simple as enrolling in recycling programs, purchasing eco-friendly office supplies, and using renewable energy.
Your office can begin to make an impact on the environment when you furnish it with eco-friendly furniture that uses natural resources and non-toxic materials. If the office furniture that you choose is easily fixable there is less of a chance of it ending up in a landfill. Also when purchasing furniture, it’s important to choose items that are durable and will stand the test of time. If it falls out of style, send it to a new home by donating it to a local charity or selling at a low cost.
With the buzz of organic food, who would have thought that furniture could be considered organic? Did you know that furniture could emit toxins? Choose to purchase furniture that is Greenguard certified – it’s considered organic. This guarantees that your furniture emits low toxins and helps to keep the air around you safe.
Where you shop matters. Make purchases from a local office furniture supplier because fewer natural resources like gas are used to get your furniture to you. You’re also helping your local community – it is a win-win for everyone.
