One of the primary business philosophies of Cohen and Cohen Group of Companies has been to recycle, our mandate is to reduce the waste that ends up in our landfills. All of our companies practice the highest levels of recycling within industry.
Our store not only retails new furniture, but promotes the use of used, eliminating the carbon footprint from the manufacturing new products in our environment. We also have a used furniture buyback program, that enables companies and individuals to help purchase new furniture, and also enables other companies to purchase there used furniture at a discounted prices, in many cases keeping it out of our landfills. When furniture has had its end of life, and cannot be resold we will dispose of it in the most environmentally friendly way, i.e. Separation of the steel from other materials for recycling.
We have even designed and promoted the use of refurbished materials in our location. The following are some of the initiatives that were instituted:
- Use of crushed concrete under parking areas from our demolitions
- All the interior lighting in our new buildings are reused
- All railings are reused
- Glass blocks reused
- All interior doors and Hardware
- All the carpeting
- All of our offices are used furniture
Great attention was taken to use recycled products, to demonstrate what can be done when the will is there to use recycled goods in new buildings. We hope that you will take the opportunity to visit our site and tour of our facilities.
