Against the backdrop of increasing global environmental awareness and resource scarcity, developing green and environmentally friendly furniture products has become the mainstream trend in the field of design and manufacturing today. This article uses waste plastics, metals, paper, and other materials to process waste furniture into high-quality furniture products through physical and chemical methods. The specific approach is to classify, clean, crush, and transform garbage, and add environmentally friendly adhesives and paints to improve its functionality and aesthetics, and reduce carbon emissions. From the perspective of carbon emission reduction, wardrobes have the highest reduction, reaching 2.5 tons of CO2 per piece, indicating that their manufacturing process has significantly reduced carbon emissions. The carbon emissions reduction of storage cabinets and sofas are also relatively high, with 2.0 tons of CO2/piece and 1.8 tons of CO2/piece, respectively. The research results of this article are beneficial for providing new ideas and methods for the green and low-carbon development of the furniture industry.
