A Little Bit of Forethought Can End a Lot of Waste with Reseat by Brandi Susewitz

Throughout my career, I’ve noticed a recurring issue: companies never had a proactive plan for their furniture’s end-of-life. Fast forward to March 2020, during the pandemic, my husband and I were laid off, and we found ourselves with plenty of time to tackle this issue. In discussions with the EPA, I learned that 98% of all contract furniture ends up in landfills, and less than 2% gets a second life. This shocking statistic made me realize the urgency of addressing this problem. Reseat provides tools to move, donate, sell, renew, reorder, and repair furniture, all through an easy-to-use dashboard. Users can also track their carbon footprint, further promoting environmental responsibility.
