Why does buying pre-owned make a difference?
Some might wonder, what is the point in buying used office furniture?
It’s a sensible question, and one we like answering. So have a look at the information below and make your own mind up.
More than three million tonnes of used office furniture goes into landfill every year. Desks, chairs, printers and used office equipment are disposed of unnecessarily. They take several years to decompose which causes damage to the environment.
Thankfully, there is an increasing awareness of our need to look after our environment and reduce the amount of material that goes into landfill. Saving used office furniture from landfill is what we do best at The Office Shop, and we have stock to supply offices across Stockport and Greater Manchester.

Reduce you carbon footprint
In contrast, when you buy second hand furniture from The Office Shop, you are keeping your footprint low and playing your part in helping the environment. Furniture is sourced from offices in Greater Manchester and sold locally, in our shop/warehouse in Stockport.
Reduce your carbon footprint
Company environmental policy
Thankfully, we are all making positive changes around the way we live by recycling at home, being conscious of our energy use and even being aware of the carbon footprint of our food. Businesses, too, have been awakened to their responsibility to operate sustainably. Many now have specific environmental policies and practices, as well as personnel responsible for implementing them.
Using second hand office furniture and refurbished office equipment is one simple, effective, policy your company can adopt to boost your environmental conscience and enhance your sustainability.
As well as being better for the environment, buying second hand office furniture and equipment is better for your bank balance!
