CFS & Our Environment
For 40 years, we have made a conscious effort to recycle everything possible that we touch: cardboard, paper, metal, plastic, metal, pallets, foam and other solid waste. And, as a part of our business model – we also recycle and refurbish a large amount of office furniture on an annual basis in our warehouse which has been refitted with energy efficient lights. As a result of our efforts, CFS was named as one of St.Louis Park’s first “Green Business” in 2006. We continue to look for ways to decrease our company’s energy /waste footprint.
Where recycled or refurbished furniture won't work, CFS looks to partner with manufacturers who provide furniture that is made from sustainable sources and which is as recyclable as possible.
CFS installed the first Platinum LEED certified project in Minnesota – Great River Energy’s headquarters in Maple Grove. We also provided a significant amount of the furniture for Welsh Companies’ (Colliers) new headquarters which achieved Gold LEED certification.
