Buying secondhand furniture helps the environment

Buying secondhand furniture helps the environment

There are so many benefits to buying used furniture, not least of which is of course, your pocket! But think about the effect on the environment. The idea behind a circular economy is to stop waste going to landfill, and instead to recycle and reuse where possible. This is great for the environment by reducing waste going to landfill, but it also reduces the environmental impact involved in manufacturing furniture. Purchasing used furniture for your home or office, is arguably the most eco-friendly way you can decorate and finish your interior design.
