Carbon conscious Fresh Start Waste Services have furthered their commitment to minimising the carbon impact of their operations through choosing to partner with Coggin Sustainable Office Solutions to refurbish and modernise their offices, resulting in an embodied saving of 2486kg of carbon.
Sustainable office furnishing is becoming increasingly popular among businesses, as it provides numerous benefits for both the environment and the bottom line. Refurbished office furniture is a great way to implement sustainable practices in the office, as it not only reduces waste but also saves money and has a positive impact on the environment.
Fresh Start Waste work with businesses across the North West to minimise their environmental impact through advising and supporting recycling as well as helping businesses with ideas to reduce the amount of waste they produce in the first place.
With this in mind, when it came time for Fresh Start to refurbish two of their five offices to support their growing business , two measures were taken. Items which were able to be refurbished and reused were done so, and new items of furniture were purchased through partner Coggin Sustainable Office Solutions who provided preloved furniture, creating a carbon saving of 2486kg.
Colin Harvey, Commercial Director at Fresh Start Waste Services said
“The benefits of using recycled office furniture was an environmental no brainer. Its all to easy for us all to get caught up in a throw away society, not giving a thought to the resources and energy required in the manufacture of essential items. We always make sure we practice what we preach, and have created updated, modern and pleasant office environments for our hard-working teams with a much lower carbon impact than if we had purchased new furniture.”
Sam Coggin, Director at Coggin Sustainable Office Solutions said
“We are thrilled to have partnered with Fresh Start Waste Services, a company that shares our vision for a sustainable future. By choosing refurbished and preloved office furniture, they’ve not only demonstrated their commitment to the environment but also paved the way for other businesses to consider more sustainable office solutions. The carbon saved in this project is a testament to the power of sustainable choices and the positive impact they can have on our planet.”
