Virco Telos Chairs “Fortify” the Circle of Life

oldschoolfurnitureEvery piece of classroom furniture you purchase, no matter how good or bad, will always run its course. We usually refer to this as the circle of life. The durability and sustainability of each product has a physical shelf life. Some chairs, desks, and tables last longer than others, but we all know that there will come a point when it will be time to purchase new classroom furniture. So just imagine if that old furniture could be recycled and used for the creation of new furniture.

This was the innovative thinking behind Virco’s Fortified Recycled Wood program that began just a few years ago. Rather than constructing all of their chairs and desks with flame and scratch resistant Martest 21 Hard Plastic, which still serves a valuable purpose, Virco came up with a more lasting solution. This is how they explained it:

“Furniture made with Fortified Recycled Wood is highly sustainable due to its long service life. And when ultimately withdrawn from service, FRW components are fully recyclable through Virco’s pioneering Take-Back Program that helps schools recycle out-of-service furniture. Even more significantly, Virco can process Take-Back items and other post-consumer recycled content materials in our own factory for the Fortified Recycled Wood used in our furniture. By extending the useful life of out-of-service furniture materials that would otherwise go to a landfill, FRW and Take-Back make a unique contribution to ‘closing the recycling loop’ in the classroom furniture industry.”
