Environmentally Friendly Furniture.
Green Furniture, often symbolized by a tree, is that which uses materials from sustainable forests, has low toxic material levels, is locally manufactured and durable enough to last. It should lend itself to easy repair, disassembly, and recycling. Products certified by MBDC’s C2C (Cradle 2 Cradle) product regimen are a perfect example, like certified office chairs from Herman Miller Steelcase. These product can be easily taken apart, sorted into their constituent parts, and recycled at the end of their useful lives.
Great efforts from individuals, governments, and companies has led to the manufacturing of products with higher sustainability known as Ecodesign. This new line of furniture is based on environmentally friendly design. Its use and popularity are increasing each year.
Here at PTS, we carry several different manufacturers who take great pride in their small carbon footprints both in the material used in their products and in the manufacturing process. Some examples include, Greenington, Ekornes, Copeland and many more!
