It’s a very easy spot for you when trying to decide if your office chair has had its day. The sides will be ripped and the stuffing will be coming out for one thing. If any one was coming by and they saw it they’d think that you are not the most professional member of staff that is on  the payroll. When you consider that the chair gets quite a fair bit off abuse as you whizz around the office bumping into things it’s not much of a surprise that the chair soon starts to look the worse for wear.

There is a serious side to the chair being in a terrible state. If the chair is listing badly or not solid it can see you posture being severely affected. This can resort to back pain and neck pain which really is no joking matter. It can cause a lot of problems in your life so that chair needs to be spot on.

In this age of environmental concern just chucking the chair in the bin seems like a very bad idea. The last thing that you want is for it to end up in yet another bit of land fill. So, here is some good news for once, the office chair is very recyclable. To name one thing most of it is made of metal and that can easily be put to new use. The fabric and  liner can also become something else but there might not even be a need to strip it down to its component parts. There are a variety of companies that will take that old chair and refurbish it into something new for an Africa or similar developing country to use.
