Furniture Donations Can Have a Very Positive Impact on the Environment

furniture-donations-articleEnvironmentally friendly decisions are always smart, and making furniture donations to charity certainly falls into that category. When you have furniture in your Atlanta, GA, area home or business that you no longer need, you should strongly consider giving it to charity in an effort to make a positive impact on the world rather that pegging it for the nearest dumpsite.

Keeping used furniture in circulation is beneficial for a few reasons. First, you prevent those items from ending up in local landfills, easing the strain on the amount of land that is required to safely store waste in your area. Second, you reduce the amount of the planet’s natural resources being used. When old furniture is taken out of circulation, it is replaced by new furniture, which means trees and other resources are destroyed. Third, aside from the environmental impact, making furniture donations also gives less fortunate families an opportunity to purchase useable furniture at a discounted rate. Finally, furniture donations to charity can have a tremendous impact on people the charitable organization is set up to help.

At American Kidney Services (AKS), we accept small furniture items as donations, such as:

  • Desks
  • End tables
  • Coffee tables
  • Dining tables
  • Bookcases

We also accept a wide variety of other goods as charitable donations, including clothing, electronics, toys, books, cookware, and decorative items (use our online form to schedule a donation pickup). All goods donated to our charity generate funds that go to support programs and services for people with and at risk of developing kidney disease, an illness that affects approximately 31 million people nationwide.

Contact AKS today for more information about how furniture donations and donating other items to our charity will benefit kidney disease patients. Residents of all communities near Atlanta, GA, including Marietta, Kennesaw, Acworth, Norcross, Alpharetta, Buford, and Sandy Springs, are welcome to make a charitable donation.
