Reduce. Reuse. Recycle. RENT!

Posted 3/15/2018 by Mariannes Rentals

In honor of International Recycling day, let's talk about the 4th R! Did you know that renting is a responsible consumer choice for shared consumption? If your carbon footprint is important, consider the environmental benefits of renting! Instead of every person needing to purchase tents, tables, and chairs for their event, renting is the ultimate form of reuse and recycling, reducing the need for the production of things that are ultimately not truly utilized. At Marianne's Rentals, we give consumers options in a variety of price points and styles to create gorgeous events without needing to purchase! A much more environmentally conscious choice. The idea of renting and reuse of a quality product more than once, or shared consumption, does not make the value of an item go down every time someone uses it, but instead, makes an item available for others and is a great way to do business!

 

Events are special, but they can be full of waste. Many people do not think through the initial impulse to buy and own an item. In addition to the purchase price, a buyer must consider the time to procure, unpackage, assemble and possibly perform other tasks to ready an item like washing food items before using or pressing linens. After the event, an owner is responsible for cleaning, repackaging and storing items. Typically, these things are in the greater bulk than an average consumer will be able to use again, because there were lots of guests at their event. At that point, an owner must assess the cost of storage or effort of reselling items they are unlikely to get the original investment back for! Renting is not only a responsible choice for the environment but also for most people's use of both their time and money!

 

At Marianne's Rentals, products are cleaning before and after an event, furniture is taken care of, linens are pressed, and everything can be delivered and set up! We want to take away as much stress as possible and help give you the items you need to fulfill your vision of the event, whether it is a wedding, shower, birthday party, corporate event, or anything else! Renting allows everyone the availability of beautiful, quality choices that may not be feasible otherwise. Instead, you rent for a much less fee and do not have to worry about storage, or set up! Later, someone else will use the items again in a new and interesting way. Because of the care for quality that we take, the lives of our products are filled with many beautiful shared memories!
