We believe that business is hard enough without throwing away money and profits. The North American society has created an obsession with buying new and excessively, and our current disposable culture is out of control and does not seem to be changing. We end up discarding things that have long-term value without even realizing it.
We believe there are many ways to recover this unnecessary waste and benefit the bottom lines of our businesses and our environment.
Take commercial grade office furniture, for example. Although it’s manufactured to last over 50 years, many companies just throw it away and get brand-new workstations every five to ten years – that alone contributes 19,000,000 pounds of waste in our landfills. Even worse, these companies end up spending as much as 2 times the cost they need to when buying their replacement furniture.
