Ways to Reuse

Add a New Coat of Paint

If a piece of furniture looks worn out, consider giving it a simple makeover, such as reupholstering. Even adding a fresh coat of paint could brighten up any old furniture piece.

Buy Secondhand Furniture

Consider saving a few dollars by purchasing furniture secondhand, but always check to see if the piece of furniture is broken. Also check for mold on the wooden parts of the furniture.

How Your Furniture May Be Harming California Condors


A recent study found that populations of the endangered California Condor have elevated levels of toxic contaminants like mercury and PBDEs, a flame retardant. PBDEs leech into the environment through close contact with or improper disposal of the items that contain them, such as stuffed and upholstered furniture. These chemicals have also been shown to have negative health effects on people.
