Eco-Smart is a way of thinking. It's a way of looking at the choices we make every day. None of us can make a difference with heroic efforts, it takes small steps every day to bring about change. It also takes a new mind-set. We need to think more about re-using, re-manufacturing, recycling, and more. Most products that are made today have plenty of life left when they are discarded. The landfills are full of products that still had value to someone, just not enough value to the one that through it in the garbage to be buried for future archeologists to find and contemplate.
Eco-Smart workspaces are part of our future. Re-purposed cubicles, office chairs, desks, and chairs of all types are often wasted because the corporate lease timeline was shorter than the product's life cycle.
There are many ways to benefit from this situation. You can leverage some corporations poor decision to create value for yourself and others around you. You can also save a ton of money and feel good doing it.
