When Earth Day Is Everyday At The Office, Used Office Furniture Recycling
Date:4/21/2010

Learn how one company is making a difference in helping keep our planet healthy by recycling used office furniture. You probably take the desk and chair you're currently sitting at for granted, but did you know that re-manufacturing just 40 workstations diverts one whole tractor-trailer load of furniture from a landfill?

(PRWEB) April 21, 2010 -- Earth day is here, but for office furniture recycling company Ethosource out of Morgantown, PA, Earth Day isn't just an annual event but a concept they take to heart and the driving force behind their unique green business.

Based in an industrial complex, Ethosource's warehouse and refurbishing facility seems an unlikely setting for a green business that is saving tons of used office furniture from heading to the landfill each day. Instead of taking up landfill space, Ethosource refurbishes used office furniture and restores it to near perfect condition. And for a business looking to buy office furniture and help mother nature in the process, buying Ethosource's furniture will save them anywhere from 30-70% of the cost of buying new.

Ethosource started out by specializing in refurbishing the Herman Miller Ethospace line of high quality modular cubicles, but has grown over the years to include office furniture from a wide array of brands . Ethosource provides a turn-key service from start to finish, from drafting floor plans, to delivery and installation. The company makes it easy and economical to be green in the workplace.

Ethosource can help your business be more than just green, they can help you make it official by helping you achieve LEED certification. USGBC’s LEED certification, which refers to the level of sustainability associated with a building, is becoming increasingly popular. There are four different possible LEED certification levels; certified, silver, gold, and platinum.

For example, EthoSource played a significant role in a recent 900 cubicle LEED Platinum project in Southeastern, Pennsylvania. The newly constructed, four-story, 200,000 square foot facility is one of less than 125 buildings in the United States to have achieved platinum level certification. Some of the building’s sustainable features include: a sod roof with native vegetation, rain water collection, energy efficient building systems, an open plan layout perfect for letting in day light, triple glazed glass walls, and geothermal wells. In the construction of the building, the company also took advantage of recycled and locally available materials wherever possible, which helped reduce the carbon footprint.

This same green approach was required for the purchase and installation of 900 employee cubicle workstations. With this in mind, the project managers discovered EthoSource and saw them as the ideal supplier to provide them with the 900 refurbished workstations the building would require.

EthoSource was able to present a creative green solution which included the maximum reutilization of their existing cubicles, the supplementation of refurbished workstations, and the blending in of new product.. All of these steps were accomplished in a collaborative effort that met the customer’s design standards, budgetary goals, and LEED objectives.

If you're planning to expand or downsize your office, give Ethosource a call to see how they might be able to help. For additional information, contact Mark Miller or visit http://www.ethosource.com/
