Reuse Your Furniture – Boston
 

The average American generates 4 ½ pounds of trash every day, and with pieces of furniture weighing upwards of 100 pounds, furniture waste accounts for a big percentage of the waste created in the United States. Reusing your old furniture keeps it out of the waste stream and decreases your contribution to overflowing landfills. If you have any furniture that no longer fits your lifestyle, think first about keeping it in use by donating it to a charity or organization that has a greater need for it. And if you are replacing a large piece of furniture, learn more about green furnishings from ecomii for the best environmental option.
