Second Hand Saves

Minimising purchases of new tech is less damaging to the environment. 

Plenty of shops and websites sell second-hand and refurbished goods. If you want something new, look for shops selling display models of items like laptops at a reduced price.

When you’re refurbishing your office social areas, consider second-hand furniture which not only offers a different look but doesn’t create demand for new product purchases.

When you’re buying second-hand, it’s the retailer’s responsibility to make sure it’s in good enough condition to sell to you.

That said, it still helps to go to a reputable seller who is knowledgeable and easily contactable if something goes wrong.
