Currently, both professionals and students alike don’t know what to do with their furniture when they move out and ultimately end up throwing it away. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, more than 19 million (19,000,000) tons of furniture is thrown out each year by Americans, which, if scaled down proportionally to each city based on population, means that in Boston alone (4.6 million people out of 318,900,000 in the U.S.) 274,067 tons of furniture is thrown out every year.12
