January Furniture Show goes greener

January Furniture Show 2020 is striving to be the greenest edition yet, reusing materials, reducing waste and recycling where possible.

The aim for 2020 is to increase the recycling rate to over 80% - up from the 76.4% achieved this year.

New green initiatives include: reusing signage, graphics and lanyards; reducing the amount of paper employed; cafes offering a discount to those using their own cups, and water refill stations in every hall; plenty of recycling stations for paper, plastics, cardboard and cans; and the use of recyclable hall carpets.

Running from 19th-22nd January at Birmingham’s NEC, January Furniture Show is the UK’s largest furniture and interiors event.
