Challenging the Fast Furniture Phenomenon

The furniture industry has seen a shift, much like the fast fashion world, where disposable, inexpensive furniture has become the norm, leading to an overwhelming amount of waste. The Environmental Protection Agency sheds light on this, revealing that in 2018, over 12 million tons of furniture were discarded. This culture of ‘fast furniture’ pushes us to constantly update our spaces, resulting in a cycle of consumption and disposal that depletes our resources and harms our environment.

Embracing a Circular Economy

In response to the fast furniture crisis, the furniture industry is embracing the circular economy, a model that aims to minimize waste and maximize the use of products through recycling, reusing, and repurposing. Furniture rental is a perfect fit for this sustainable model, allowing for the continuous use of quality furniture without the need for constant purchasing and disposal.

The Benefits of Renting Furniture

  1. Minimizing Waste: Choosing to rent furniture means actively choosing to minimize waste. Instead of the buy-and-discard cycle, rented furniture gets a second life, extending its lifespan and significantly reducing landfill waste. By choosing furniture rental, you’re saying no to the 12 million tons of furniture waste generated annually.
  1. Conserving Natural Resources: The production of furniture demands vast amounts of natural resources. By choosing to rent, you’re reducing the demand for these resources, helping to preserve our forests and minimize harmful practices like mining. Furniture rental also promotes the use of sustainable materials, contributing to a greener planet.
  1. Enhancing Energy Efficiency: The creation and distribution of furniture are energy-intensive processes. Furniture rental optimizes energy use by maximizing the utility of each furniture piece, reducing the need for constant manufacturing and transportation. This choice is a stride towards a more energy-efficient future.

The Green Impact of Furniture Rental

Embracing the principles of a circular economy, Abode and our sister company Furniture Options have been instrumental in keeping furniture in circulation, maximizing its lifespan, and minimizing waste. By offering high-quality furniture for rent, we’ve created a sustainable loop, ensuring that each piece of furniture is utilized to its fullest potential before being refurbished and rented out again. This approach not only reduces waste but also conserves natural resources as the demand for new furniture production decreases.

Furniture Options having been in the business since 1985, and with an extensive network spanning across 7 states, has undoubtedly contributed to optimizing energy usage in the furniture industry. By refurbishing and reusing furniture, they’ve reduced the need for energy-intensive manufacturing processes, contributing to a decrease in greenhouse gas emissions. With our long-standing presence in the market we’ve made a significant positive impact on energy efficiency and a reduced carbon footprint over the years.
