Going Green in Milton Keynes – Office Furniture

Feb 11, 2017

Milton Keynes, or MK as those who live close by affectionately refer to it, is a trail-blazer of a modern town. Built on a grid road system, rather than the traditional radial approach, its wide boulevards and open spaces ooze green-conscious design.

Milton Keynes, or MK as those who live close by affectionately refer to it, is a trail-blazer of a modern town. Built on a grid road system, rather than the traditional radial approach, its wide boulevards and open spaces ooze green-conscious design. And anything with an environmental attitude catches our eye at CamHam… we like Milton Keynes.

But Milton Keynes and office furniture… really?
Yes! There is a link… promise. One of the main objectives behind the design of Milton Keynes was, and still is, sustainability. Sustainable living reduces our carbon footprint, helps the environment thrive, and builds a community. When you run a business in Milton Keynes, you’re doing more than just making money. You’re helping a community to pursue and maintain a sustainable way of life that extends to the benefit of everyone. That sounds good, doesn’t it?

How does CamHam Office Furniture support the Milton Keynes green dream?
As you’ll probably already know, we have a huge selection of new and used office furniture. We only sell UK sourced and manufactured furniture. And we aim to reuse, resell and/or recycle 90-95% of our used inventory. That’s quite some objective. How do we do it?

1. We reuse as many pieces of office furniture as we can
Our experienced staff will check each item that comes in and refurbish any pieces that are slightly blemished to the highest standard. We will then make it available for purchase.

2. We recycle office furniture that can’t be reused properly
Items that are no longer fit for purpose will be stripped down into their component parts, and then find themselves appropriately recycled through accredited recycling partners.

3. We minimise the use of environmentally-draining packaging
We do this by reusing, whenever possible, packaging material that comes into our depot.

4. We try to schedule our deliveries geographically
Our aim is to keep our delivery mileage to as low a level as possible. We’re based in Northampton but, for example, we’ll aim to batch our office furniture deliveries to Milton Keynes together.

5. We don’t just sell office furniture, we also hire it out
This provides us with an additional outlet for making use of what we gather via office clearances and furniture exchanges.

If you’d like to find out a little more about how we recycle the office furniture items that come our way, we’ve written a blog specifically on the subject. Please click here!

So, in summary, if you’re keen to work with an environmentally aware, efficient and friendly office furniture business that regularly supplies to Milton Keynes, we’d ask you to get in touch with us. Not only do we supply office furniture in as an environmentally friendly way as we can… we help you boost your corporate social responsibility too.

If you’d like to enhance your green credentials, and help Milton Keynes continue to pursue its quest to support this too, please get in touch. We’d be delighted to take some big green steps forward with you!
