Office furniture is an essential part of all businesses and organizations. Often, companies update or replace their furniture and are allowed to find a place to dispose of items. Throwing them into a landfill is not an ecological way to dispose of office furniture as it is added to already overloaded landfills. As more people and businesses adopt a 'green' lifestyle, there are greener ways to get rid of their office furniture. One of these ways is to donate it to a needy cause. In doing so, you are helping the environment and a charity.

One way to find a place to donate office furniture is to consult online organizations that accept this type of item. If the organization has a charity status, you will receive a receipt for your donation that you can use for tax deductions for the business. It is important that you give them all their contact and address information so that they can give you a tax receipt. You can donate chairs, desks, tables, copiers, telephones, fax machines, printers and computers. Eg. Freecycle is a non-profit organization that is a free internet service that helps encourage the recycling of items rather than throwing them away. Simply publish the things you need to give away on the list that serves your area. You don’t receive a tax receipt, but you help someone who needs it and helps the environment.
