Consignment Keeps Furniture Out of Landfills
The Environmental Protection Agency estimates that 10 million tons of furniture end up in landfills annually, making furniture the least recycled household item. Consignment stores offer a viable, profitable alternative to putting outdated couches and chairs on the curb or in the dumpster.
Consignment stores make the process of reselling furniture, art, and accessories easy, with many of them offering pick-up and online options. The consignment process offers consumers the opportunity to purchase unique, high-quality used furniture that is gentle on the environment while giving sellers the chance to make money from furniture that they can no longer use.
“New furniture isn’t necessarily better when it comes to quality and craftsmanship,” explains Designed to Consign co-owner Rebecca Redwine. “A lot of money and the environment can be saved by purchasing quality consignment items. Consignment furniture is anything but cookie cutter and can be very satisfying when filling your home’s missing eclectic pieces or furnishing an entire traditional or modern home.”
