Giving furniture a second chance at life by reusing it as is
The circular economy model implies focusing on the potential for reuse of different products and raw materials.
The first step in this direction would be to reuse the products in their actual form without alterations. That can be done either by finding a new place for them inside the organisation or reusing them in a different location. Regardless of the setting, maintenance plays a vital role in the reuse of these products.
When giving products a second chance at life in their original form is not feasible, the second option is to look at each individual part and assess their potential for reuse or recycling.
In what follows, we’ll be expanding on how we approach the reuse of furniture in its original state.
Reuse is the key to a circular economy. The concept refers to reusing products as they are in an attempt to prevent generating more waste.
The same approach is used for redistribution, with the only difference being that the latter only targets the relocation of furniture, whether that happens inside the organization, or outside of it. Similar to reusing, redistribution doesn’t imply the alteration of furniture pieces but leaves them in their original form.
Although we won’t modify the furniture pieces that we reuse in any way, they will undergo maintenance and cleaning. During this process, all parts will be carefully inspected for flaws and will be repaired accordingly.
