According to the Small Business Association, one-third of all small businesses fail within the first two years. While that may not be news to cheer about, it does make you wonder where all that semi-new office equipment ends up.

Many office furniture stores have rows of returned furniture at steeply discounted prices. Go green and save green by reusing.
