In recent years, terminology like reclaimed wood and sustainable furniture has become common when discussing eco-friendly furniture. What exactly do these terms mean? Reclaimed wood is wood that was once part of a building or structure and is now being re-purposed or used to build something new. Sustainable materials that are used to make furniture are materials that do not exhaust or consume their original supply. For instance, reclaimed wood is sustainable since it re-purposes existing wood that is no longer used, rather than cutting down trees and using new wood. Bamboo is also considered sustainable because of how quickly it re-grows.
As people begin to make more conscientious choices about the products they buy, the need for green products increases. Green furniture is no exception.
