With an ever-increasing emphasis being placed on going green and becoming more environmentally conscious worldwide, people are searching for ways to reduce their impact on our fragile environment. When we think about ways to be environmentally conscious, things like turning off lights to save electricity, recycling, and watching our water consumption often come to mind. There’s another way that many people overlook; that is renting furniture.
One of the main environmental concerns about buying furniture is that pieces like tables, couches, and chairs for example, require a large amount of raw material to produce. Items like this are often used for a short time and then disposed of because of remodeling or redecorating, sentencing those precious materials to a landfill. Renting furniture removes the stress of figuring out what to do with your furniture when you no longer need it. Once you’re finished with it, simply return it to the store. Once the furniture is returned, it’s cleaned, refurbished, and rented back out to the next client in like-new condition.
One of the greatest threats to our environment is the loss of our forests throughout the world, so anything we can do to reduce the amount of wood we consume is a good idea. By renting your furniture, it allows multiple families to enjoy the same piece of furniture, greatly reducing the amount of wood used on building furniture.
