Join the 100 million Americans that recycle each day! Enter this worthy movement by purchasing gently used furniture from EARTHJUNK. “Recycling prevents pollution.” When structurally sound furniture pieces are purchased for home use instead of new furniture we help Planet Earth. We avoid the environmental damage caused by harvesting trees. Manufacturing new furniture involves the use of virgin materials and harms the ecosystem. Unfortunately, new furniture is not made to stand the test of time. One human lifetime, of replacing inferior furniture with more new furniture has a huge cumulative negative impact. New furniture lasts forever in landfills. “Landfills are not a sustainable approach for Earth. Landfills are the largest source of human-caused methane, a greenhouse gas 21 times more powerful than carbon dioxide. The EPA admits all landfill liners will eventually leak.” Visualize this toxic garbage cocktail seeping into and contaminating soil and groundwater supplies. Gross! Planet Earth deserves better! Do your part and buy quality used furniture the next time your home needs additional furniture. It is our mission to rid Earth of all junk furniture. 95% of new furniture is total junk and needs to be avoided like the black plaque that it actually is for Planet Earth. Only you can decide what legacy you want to leave for our wonderful Planet Earth.
