There have been so many changes in our world—is it time to change to new office furniture for your NJ office? If you’re thinking about getting new furniture, you may be wondering about your impact on the climate. After all, one of the best changes our world has made in 2021 is to start paying more attention to the environment! Fortunately, your local NJ furniture store is here with some tips on how to fight climate change when you buy new office furniture.
#1: Buy Used
Yes, we’re cheating a bit here. The absolute best way to reduce your impact on climate change when looking for office furniture is to buy used! Preowned office furniture in New Jersey doesn’t have to be tattered or worn; the selection at Commercial Furniture Resource is gently used, cleaned and sanitized, and repaired to be in like-new condition! Buying a used desk keeps a whole desk out of a landfill—just consider that!
#2: Source Local
Okay, you’ve considered buying used, but you really want new office furniture! In this case, the best way you can help your environment is to buy new furniture from a store in New Jersey. The less your furniture has to “travel” before it reaches you, the better! Sure, you could go to an online retailer for your new furniture, but it might ship across the country—or across the oceans! When you work with a local NJ furniture store, your carbon footprint is a little shorter.
#3: Sell Back Old Furniture
No matter if you choose to buy pre-owned or new furniture for your NJ office, what are you going to do with your old furniture? If you answered “resell it to a used furniture store,” you just made the earth happy! Even though your old furniture seems outdated, scratched up, or just not your style anymore, it could be the perfect piece for someone else—or a great fixer-upper! Engaging in the used market keeps stuff out of landfills, so sell back if you can!
