A Greener Solution: Repurposing Your Office Furniture

Repurposing office furniture is one of the few ways to maintain a sustainable office. A sustainable office is one that can sustain itself and doesn’t create any unnecessary waste or clutter. It also reduces the amount of harmful gases emitted into the air.

How does repurposed furniture improve air quality? Well, there is such a thing Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) that are used in the production of new office furniture. Over time, these VOCs are relased from new pieces of furniture during the first few years of that particular piece of furniture’s life. When a piece of furniture is repurposed, it greatly reduces the amount of VOCs that are emitted into the air.
