MillerKnoll is committed to sustainable design throughout a product’s entire life cycle. It starts with the goal of designing beautiful, functional pieces that will stand the test of time. That is complemented by purposefully designing out waste, using sustainable materials, and incorporating the ability to easily recycle an item at the end of its use.
We launched the Herman Miller rePurpose program in 2009 to provide customers and dealers with sustainable options for handling used surplus furniture, fixtures, and equipment. This program not only protects the environment, it also creates lasting benefits within communities. Since the program’s inception, the company has diverted more than 25,000 tons from landfills through a combination of donation, resale, reuse, and recycling.
Today, as MillerKnoll, we are doubling down on our commitment to improve the health of our planet and our communities by expanding our rePurpose program across our collective of brands in the U.S.
“We’ve always been a company that cares about the environment, and many of our customers share those values. We take great responsibility in helping our customers achieve their sustainability goals,” said Gabe Wing, Vice President of Sustainability at MillerKnoll. “Empowering them to make decisions with the planet in mind also allows us to achieve our own goals, which focus on reducing our carbon footprint, designing out waste, and sourcing better materials.”
