Everyone loves the concept of “going green.” But in today’s fast-paced, high-tech world, sacrificing our convenience to do so is a tough sell. Let’s face it, most of us are reluctant to choose them in the absence of same-day deliveries and extended battery life. In short, we don’t want our lives to get more difficult for choosing a sustainable option.
But when it comes to office furniture, sourcing environmentally friendly solutions doesn’t have to make life harder for business owners and office managers. In fact, with today’s supply chain issues and inflated economy, the total opposite is true. Check out four great reasons why now is the perfect time to upgrade your office furniture with an eco-friendly approach.
Supply chains remain an enormous obstacle across all industries right now. Getting anything shipped is more costly, time-consuming, and downright frustrating than it has been at any other time in recent history. But a green-minded solution for your office upgrade or remodel can cut turnaround times down significantly. As a full-service dealer of new and used furniture, Ethosource has warehouses full of high-quality, refurbished Ethospace, office chairs, desks, and more all onsite and available to be customized in terms of fabrics, materials, accessories, and more. Whether you’re interested in a product as-is or looking to further personalize to match your brand or style, it’s much easier for a sustainable office liquidation company to expedite deliveries than it is for a new furniture distributor who relies on third parties to get what they need before sending it to you. Even with today’s unreliable supply chain, green liquidation companies are able to live up to their reputations for extremely quick office deliveries.
It may not come as a surprise to you that new products are generally more expensive than used. That’s why going the route of professionally refurbished high-end furniture, or supplementing new pieces with refurbished ones, is the perfect way to hit company bottom lines without sacrificing the quality you want. By understanding the goals for your space, a design team can work with you to blend high-end new and refurbished furniture to offer the greatest impact for your employees and the best use of your budget. And what’s even better is that refurbished furniture can also provide benefits in terms of upkeep and longevity as older materials are often more durable. In the high-pressure environment that many new dealers are facing in terms of inventory and lead times, it pays to have a product you can count on — and one that your employees will appreciate.
Ethosource’s refurbished Herman Miller Ethospace is highly customizable, combining all of the performance benefits you want from a cubicle system with your company’s personal design and aesthetics. We start with previously enjoyed Herman Miller Ethospace cubicles that are brought into our remanufacturing facility and upgrade the system with your choice of fabrics and finishes, storage solutions, accessories, and more. But the customizability doesn’t stop with individual pieces. We let clients blend solutions, mixing and matching manufacturers, supplementing new furniture with recycled pieces, and have a team of professional designers to help you achieve any vision on any budget. This blending of solutions is our specialty at Ethosource, and we’re passionate about the possibilities. Businesses can make their offices shine in 2022 with custom-fitted designs — leading to stunning impressions, higher employee retention, and more!
Feel Good and Look Good
Not only is going green cost-efficient, speedy, and flexible, but it also helps us lessen our impact on the environment — which everyone can feel good about. Buying refurbished is the standard for sustainable office furniture, and by doing so, businesses can take a long-term step for the environment that actually makes life significantly easier on them in the short term as well. But we can’t ignore the positive impact that green business solutions can have on a company’s public image either! With sustainability now a priority to many consumers and employees, redesigning your space with refurbished office furniture is a smart and effective way to earn their admiration and loyalty with the right messaging.
Now more than ever, upgrading your space with refurbished furniture has significant benefits for your business — saving money, skirting supply chain holdups, and supporting a positive public image.
