The Green Future
OFL is deeply committed to being on the forefront of our most pressing environmental issues. We also believe that in considering our environment we can save a substantial amount of money at the same time. It’s a win/win situation.
As part of our commitment to the environment we are happy to introduce some of our Green programs to help push Ottawa into a brighter greener future. We look forward to bringing the 3R’s into the office world in ways yet to be conceived.
Preventing waste not only clears a better way for our future generations, it creates a positive public image, harbours a healthier working environment, and above all else it saves money. Money which can in turn be used towards future growth and new programs, it’s a good thing.
Environment, Health, and Financial
Below are a couple of the programs which we are now offering to help get companies started towards a responsible future. If at any time you would like more information on any of these programs please feel free to contact us.
Please keep in mind that each program can be custom tailored to suite your business needs.
The Chair Program
Our 7 point tune-up you can prolong the life of your chairs substantially and keeps good office chairs from going to landfill. Included in this package is an antibacterial disinfectant that will reduce the spread of bacteria and viruses.
On top of doubling or tripling the life of your chair, killing bacteria and viruses, you will also keep chairs safe and in working order which in turn will prevent workplace related injuries.
In order to prevent landfill waste, OFL will take all your old furniture and recycle as much as possible. We will separate any metals and whatever metal we can sell we will reimburse to our customers. Whatever furniture we can salvage we will reuse. This program earns Leeds points.
If it is time for new furniture we also offered remanufactured products and other environmentally conscious lines. Our suppliers are dedicated to providing us with the greenest possible products.
Whether it’s remanufactured Herman Miller (A02), or brand new greener technology lines such as Nightingale – we have it. These items are not only environmentally sound but they are 30% to 60% cheaper than the leading products.
By making greener decisions we are looking towards the future. Our current economic and environmental times have forced us to reevaluate how we operate. Lucky it will affect us for the better. By creating less pollution and using money where it’s needed most we are creating an environment that with push us farther with less.
Let us lead the way together and create a model for the rest to follow. The world is ours to run, let’s run it right. The future is green!
If there is something you require that isn’t covered here please let us know and we can work with you to make sure it happens. We are flexible and can accommodate any job.

What should you focus on when selecting office furniture?
Having made the initial budget assessment, you may start looking for a suitable purchase. We suggest that you focus your attention on:
- Furniture with an adjustability range that can fit all prospective users. Some chairs have interchangeable cylinders to accommodate very tall or short people.
- A fully adjustable chair with height-adjustable armrests.
- An adjustable desk is preferable.
- A footrest is highly recommended if you decide on a non-adjustable desk.
- Accessories, such as a copyholder, mouse, task lamps, etc. (discuss these with staff and get their feedback as personal preferences are very important).
- Need to reach the CPU (e.g., use of memory sticks, DVDs, CD-ROMs, etc.)
As always, our fully trained staff can assist you in choosing the furniture pieces that are right for you.
