The Benefits Of Second Hand Furniture

Thumbnail 1000009916

Buying used furniture is often more sustainable, ethical, healthy and cost effective. You can find some really unique pieces that you may not see elsewhere, especially if something has been lovingly upcycled. Here are just a few reasons why you might want to buy second hand for your home.

More Sustainable And Ethical

The furniture industry is one of the least sustainable, and most pollutive industries. With interior design fashions changing faster and faster companies are pushed to produce more products cheaply and quickly, sometimes underpaying and exploiting workers at the same time. So-called “fast furniture” also leads to more plastic being created and further deforestation to make wooden products. By purchasing pre-loved items you break that harmful cycle and don’t contribute to exploitation of people or new materials being over-produced and wasted.

Save Money

Unless you’re out buying some fabulous antiques the chances are used furniture will be cheaper, especially if its previous owners are keen to get rid of it. Who doesn’t want to save a bit of money when they can?

Healthier For You And Your Family

Pre-loved furniture doesn’t pollute your home with off-gas. New furniture is often made of particle board and formaldehyde-treated composite woods that can cause eye and nose irritation, and sometimes effect asthmatics.
