Where to find upholsterers and places to donate/retrieve furniture.

Re-upholster, re-cover sofas, make do and mend. Some of the best-known high-street furniture brands STILL use rainforest timber.
To be sure you are avoiding this, look out for the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) logo. Some furniture outlets have an eco-friendly range.

Furniture Schemes, for those on benefits or low income, where you can obtain donated furniture :Shrewsbury Furniture Scheme in Monkmoor  SY2 5TF is recommended. See detail below.
If you have furniture you no longer need, then consider donating to the above scheme rather than taking it to ‘the dump’
