GO GREEN WITH MFC
Create an Environmentally Friendly Office
Your business can have a great impact on our environment. By choosing environmentally friendly furniture and by following the simple “reduce, reuse and recycle” adage, MFC makes it is easy to buy office furniture that is green. We have found most businesses will chose to do the right thing for the environment when given the chance. Choosing to buy used or refurbished office furniture will be one of the most important environmental decisions you will make for your business.
New office furniture production is intensive in its use of fossil fuels, raw materials and waste. Buying and installing refurbished and used office furniture eliminates over 90% of the environmental impact associated with the material inputs, production and distribution of office equipment. We are seeing today that some companies even include their purchase of used furniture and equipment in their environmental impact planning and marketing.
When you buy used or refurbished, you save valuable resources and help the environment. On principle, this rule applies to all products, since everything takes energy to manufacture or even recycle. Therefore, think about the good effects about buying used office furniture for your office. By purchasing green office furniture green from MFC Workstations, you will reduce energy use, reduce landfill use, get quality long lasting office furniture and save thousands of dollars.
