Choosing Green Office Furniture Can Be Cost Effective

Many people shopping for new office furniture today are commonly looking to go green. However, the inexperienced shopper often finds themselves believing that GREENGUARD Certified office furniture will cost them more out of pocket. This is incorrect in several ways.

In today's market GREENGUARD office furniture includes everything from conference desks to reception stations. Finding GREENGUARD Certified furniture can be quite simple if you know the manufacturers to look for. Sites like ours,, offer a host of products from industry leading manufacturers, who pride themselves on paving the way for the green office products movement. Companies like new furniture by Mayline, Global Total Office, and Safco offer hundreds of quality Green office products. Furthermore, these items are just like any other, with one huge exception! They have passed GREENGUARD Certification tests to be considered environmentally friendly. Products such as these can and will improve your indoor air quality significantly.

Basically what I'm getting at is that there is literally no extra charge to have a piece of green office furniture. The manufacturer has taken the time to have the items certified, makes the necessary changes in the products production, and provides the certified item at no additional cost! That being said, there is really no reason not to go green wherever possible. Now, I'm not saying that there aren't companies out there up-charging for green products. However, most do not. Finding a quality dealer that provides furniture from the companies stated above will go a long way. It will save you money and help you, help everyone! Considering that we have proven green office furniture costs the same as non-green, why wouldn't you help reduce our environmental footprint, and improve our air at the same time. To me, it's a no-brainer.
