Buy used furniture
It doesn't always have to be something new. You don't have to buy furniture according to trends. Because it's not sustainable. To be honest, there is nothing better than having a piece of furniture at home that tells a story.
Second-hand furniture, for example, is often something very special. On the one hand, they are surrounded by a kind of historical aura, because you like to wonder how the apartment they were standing in was and what happened around them. On the other hand it's great to be able to refresh such furniture and give it a new existence, especially if it's over 50 years old.
If you furnish your home with second-hand and vintage furniture, it's the best thing you can do for the environment. Good furniture and furnishings are very durable and can be used forever. Also, most of the substances that evaporate from furniture have already evaporated. And you save important resources such as wood and reduce CO2.
To keep transport short when you buy, you can search for such pieces at flea markets, local auction houses, ebay classifieds or used furniture stores.
And if you ever want to get rid of a piece of furniture, but it is still in good condition, you can also give it away, sell it or donate it to social institutions via the platforms mentioned above.
