How Refurbished Cubicles Can Help You Earn LEED Credits
Buying refurbished cubicles instead of new is not only a perfect way to save money, but it can even help you to stay eco-friendly and, in the process, earn LEED accreditation from the U.S. Green Building Council. Earning LEED accreditation is not necessarily a difficult process, but it does require a business to earn a certain number of points. Some of these points can be earned by buying used or recycled office furniture. In fact, you can begin earning points toward LEED certification by spending only 30 percent or more of your office furniture budget on used office furnishings.
Buying refurbished cubicles and other used office furniture is financially advantageous not only in terms of the money you will save by purchasing used furnishings, but also because if you can qualify for LEED certification, you may earn significant tax benefits. In addition to tax savings, you may also see an increase in business from other companies that want to work exclusively with environmentally friendly companies. There are several less tangible but equally important benefits in gaining LEED certification, too. Having LEED certification can help your business go a long way toward branding itself as an eco-friendly company. Employees working in a LEED certified business and spending their days surrounded by refurbished cubicles, used workstations, and other types of recycled office furniture may feel more inclined to living more environmentally sustainable lifestyles during their personal time.
