What the world needs is for us to pay a bit more attention to Mother Earth.
With the ever-growing population, people are trying to find any way they can to reuse items. Any little thing that helps society become more eco-friendly or slows the use of resources seems worth it.
The question is what does this have to do with furniture? Furniture rental companies like RentFeather are promoting a new way of going green: reusing furniture. Most people follow a cycle of buying overpriced furniture, using them for a few years and then dumping the furniture. And it hurts the environment. Furniture rental however, is a game-changer.
Since this is one of the little-known ways to be eco-friendly, how does renting furniture benefit the environment?
1. Different Taste, Less Waste
Often enough, when your style changes, most of your furniture and décor end up in the trash. This means that landfills become fuller as time wears on. What most people do not know is that landfills are not designed to decompose waste. They are designed to bury it. Even items that are easily biodegradable, like apples, have been found intact 2 years after they were buried.
This is the exact reason why renting is a better option when it comes to furnishing your home. If your style changes, it is easy to exchange furniture pieces for new ones that match your newly remodeled room. Former pieces are then returned and added back into the inventory for other people to rent. In other words, you get a greater variety of furniture for less of an impact on the environment.
2. Halt the Need
We as a population need to reduce the use of Earth’s raw materials.
Achieving this goal goes hand in hand with renting furniture. By renting items, they are being reused; meaning the need to build new furniture pieces is decreasing. Raw materials will see less of an impact of consumption, leaving these precious elements, like wood and metal, available for other more important needs.
3. It Simply Lasts
You may not imagine yourself renting furniture for the rest of your life, but, if you think about it, the rental option may not be as far of a stretch as you might think.
Some people want high-quality furniture but simply do not have the funds to go buy their furniture outright.
Rental furniture is made up of quality pieces that have been built to last. The pieces are made up of materials that have been known to stand the test of time and do not take much to maintain. Durability is built into the pieces, something you simply do not see nowadays.
Businesses are buying this type of furniture to not only provide you with high-end pieces but, they are also reducing the chance of anything going to the landfill. Investing in these means they will last through several renters, and if a piece ever does come back broken it can easily be repaired.
Think about it this way; by renting now you are saving materials like wood, plastics, and metals for future use down the road. You are literally paving the way toward eco-friendliness for our future generations.
Join us in helping that paved road extend just a little bit farther by helping to rent, reuse, and recycle.
