We’re on a mission to help create a zero-waste economy. We are committed to providing a sustainable, smart and creative solution for the reuse of surplus office furniture.
It’s estimated that each year corporate office refurbishments throughout Australia generate more than 30,000 tonnes of loose furniture ‘waste’. Yet, on average, only 18% is recycled and 2% reused – despite these items often being in good operational order and inherently high in value. As an industry, we can and must do better than this.
Rajiv Midha, the founder GFH and director of Goals A+N, corporate relocation specialist, explains “I was alarmed by the amount of surplus material generated by businesses in transition, from growth, downsizing, relocating or rebranding. The amount of perfectly serviceable office furniture which ends up as landfill is truly unacceptable. That’s why I founded green furniture hub. To make it easy for organisations to choose the sustainable alternative.”
Get in the circle
Economic growth is tied to the consumption of the earth’s finite resources through a ‘take, make and waste’ model. Moving to a circular model, designed to eliminate waste altogether, is recognised as the only viable long-term solution. This creates new ecological, social and financial opportunities for small and large business, organisations and individuals, locally and globally. Including you.
