When in Doubt, Ebay!

HOK's St. Louis office recently moved and received LEED Silver certification. Some of their furniture didn't work with the new location and was was very old and pretty dated. The designers tried to sell the furniture back to the furniture manufacturer or through secondary furniture markets, but no one would accept it. Some of the folks in the office suggested selling the furniture on Ebay... which they did, and used the extra money to buy cool new green conference tables.

Who says being sustainable means spending money?

Craigslist and Freecycle are also great ways to either find "reused" materials or to get rid of old but still useful stuff!
