When remodeling or purchasing more furniture, consider buying second-hand. There is already used furniture in New Orleans for every need, in your office, home, or other. Buying second-hand reduces waste and pollution associated with production and transportation.
Why this Matters
For My Organization
Buying non-new furniture will reduce costs and often adds atmosphere and taste to any indoor space. Also, the quality of older furniture is usually better as newer products are made with cheaper materials. Buying local furniture will reduce transport costs.
For New Orleans
Buying second-hand furniture keeps these items out of landfills and reduces pollution from production and transportation. Reusing non-furniture in homes and other spaces also gives New Orleans a more comfortable and interesting look and feel.
