Why You Should Consider Sustainable Design: Protect the planet, increase well-being and save money.

When it comes to sustainable design, the benefits are plenty — your sustainable design can help keep the blue planet green, but it can also increase the health and happiness of your employees and save you money. Luckily, technological advances of the 21st century have made it easier to make sustainable choices. From upcycling and choosing environmentally friendly materials to opting for an innovative office interior, learn how sustainable design can save you money, increase the wellbeing of your employees and help keep the earth spinning round.

Protect the Planet
Being aware of materials is the first step to creating a sustainable design. Choose items made with the environment in mind and buy from companies that value sustainability. Steelcase, our primary furniture manufacturing partner, works hard to effect positive change and runs a materials chemistry practice used to understand the effects of what goes into their products. They are phasing out anything of concern as they create alternatives and teamed up with companies that share similar beliefs.

Save Money
We all know recycling is good for the planet, but what about upcycling? This term refers to the process of reusing material without reducing quality. As it pertains to sustainable design, upcycling can cut costs and allow for more room in your budget. Instead of purchasing new furniture for your office, consider pre-owned.
