We Offer Safe Green Guard Office Furniture Products
Some of our products are Green Guard Indoor Air Certified for interior air emission levels. Group Lacasse, ChairWorks and Evolve products meet GREENGUARD Certification Standards for Low-Emitting Products. The GREENGUARD Environmental Institute is an industry-independent, nonprofit organization that has established performance based standards to define goods with low chemical and particle emissions for use indoors, including seating products. The standard establishes certification procedures including test methods, allowable emissions levels, product sample collection and handling, testing type and frequency, and program application processes and acceptance.
GREENGUARD Certified products undergo rigorous testing to determine their impact on indoor air pollution with requirements for ongoing testing and verification. Complete information concerning GREENGUARD may be found at www.greenguard.org. We can provide you with printable Certificates of Indoor Air Quality also.

Why Buying Recycled, Remanufactured or Pre-Owned Office Furniture from PVI Makes Sense.
In doing this, you extend the lives of resources already in circulation such as wood, aluminum, steel, plastics, and fiber, using them over and over to the fullest extent possible. Fabrics in panel systems tend to wear out and become outdated. By remanufacturing, the fabrics can be replaced and the office furniture returned to the market for a second life. Remanufacturing conserves energy and natural resources. The amount of labor and energy required to alter existing product during remanufacturing is 85% to 95% less than that required to manufacture a new product. Industry experts estimate that for each pound of natural resources used in remanufacturing, 5-9 pounds of virgin materials are conserved. As far as public relations, recycling sets a great example for your company's image. It shows that your firm is managing the company's assets wisely and sends the message that conservation and waste reduction is an important corporate goal.
Also of note, your furniture budget is greatly extended when purchasing from our Pre Owned Area. The items we feature are gently used and except for a minor scratch or ding sometimes, as good as new. But they're a fraction of the cost of a similar new item so your buying power is greatly extended. These products also qualify for 100% recycling credits per the Environmental Protection Agency Green Programs for further buying incentives.
Three million tons of office furniture - most of which is not biodegradable - ends up in landfills each year, so you'll be doing your part to reduce the resources used to collect, break-down and dispose of this type of waste.The Evolve panel system.
