Green Furniture Hub Opens in Brisbane
Access free quality office furniture from corporate office de-fits
It’s estimated that each year office strip-out works across the country generate up to 30,000 tonnes of left-over furniture. Most of this is sent to landfill despite a lot of items still being in excellent condition and inherently high in value. The problem is significant and multi-faceted. It’s costing tenants unnecessary disposal costs, it’s shortening the lifecycle of items, and it’s environmentally unsustainable.
Putting in place a rehoming pathway for this furniture creates a new type of procurement opportunity for small businesses, charities, or those looking for cost-effective upgrades. It also helps those businesses undertaking real estate projects achieve resource recovery via landfill diversion on what is considered ‘surplus.’ It’s a win, win.
This is why we formed Green Furniture Hub (GFH). GFH is essentially an online marketplace for the surplus furniture on our clients’ de-fit or make-good projects. However, instead of charging for each item customers pay a flat fee to access a bulk quantity of goods ($250 for each 15 cubic metres). You can fit a lot into 15 cubic metres such as 40-45 office chairs or 10 meeting room tables. Importantly, our model provides free access to charities at the end of our furniture listings, or they may wish to pay $250 to access the full listing period. Handling and delivery costs also apply where relevant.
We believe, this type of low-cost, scalable model is where the next generation of businesses with circular economic principles are headed. And we want to be a part of that movement.
So, if you are after office furniture for your own fit-out, for the people you help, or are looking for ways to generate extra revenue via re-selling, register your details at Green Furniture Hub. We’re operating in Sydney, have just launched in Brisbane, and have resources on the ground and ready in Melbourne.
