Is your current office furniture looking a little shabby? Are you considering buying new or pre-owned furniture in New Jersey, but want to make sure that your purchase makes a minimal impact on the environment? If so, you should consider the benefits of buying used. Pre-owned furniture in NJ is not only far less expensive than new furniture, it can help you save the world! Keep reading to see how.
Save the Forests
For every wooden desk, sofa, table, or other piece of office furniture, trees are chopped down. This is a problem for the earth, as forests are part of nature’s way of cleaning the air and providing home for woodland animals. Did that mahogany desk stand as a tall tree for decades before being cut down? Why not give it another few years of life and add a pre-owned desk to your office.
Save the Fuel
When you buy new furniture, it usually comes from afar. How far? Well, it could be across the country, or across the world—or, some pieces could come from all over. If that sounds like a lot of fuel to make a conference table, you’re right! On the other hand, pre-owned furniture tends to stay local, and often comes assembled. Likewise, most pre-owned furniture sellers in NJ source from local supplies, reducing the fuel needed to bring your office furniture to your office.
Save the Landfills
For too many years, trash just seemed to disappear, or go into never-ending landfills. Times sure are changing, because many landfills are full, and many of the nations that accepted trash from the US have closed their doors as well. Humans across the globe have too much stuff that gets thrown away! Don’t feel guilty about it—be a part of the solution and keep a used office chair, executive desk set, or any other furniture out of the landfills when you buy pre-owned.
Change is not something that happens all at once, or that just one person sets in motion. If we all contribute to reducing climate change, we can make a positive impact! Let your office be a part of that positive movement when you buy pre-owned furniture at CFR Direct!
