What is Eco-Friendly Home Furnishing? The term “eco-friendly” can have a lot of meanings, ranging from reclaimed and repurposed materials to harvesting materials that replenish themselves quickly, like bamboo and rubber tree. Some of our lines that are made with eco-friendly products include lounge and living area furniture, office furniture, and rugs.
We also carry a gorgeous line of unique, handmade wood furniture. Why is eco-friendly living important? There are many benefits to selecting eco-friendly options over conventional options when it comes to furniture, food, vehicles, and appliances. Non-Toxic: Many home furnishings are made of plastic or treated with chemicals, both of which are known to off-gas into the air we breathe, posing serious health risks including cancer. Environmentally friendly furniture does not contaminate our air supply. Earth Friendly: Reclaiming, recycling, repurposing, and harvesting only species of plants that replenish quickly reduces deforestation. Deforestation contributes to global warming and displaces humans, animals, and has been attributed to extinction. Lower Cost: Money talks, right? Eco-friendly home furnishings are typically less expensive and as durable as their conventionally made counterparts. Moreover, by purchasing environmentally friendly furniture, you are likely purchasing from a reputable vendor who pays fair wages to their labor.
Why do we sell non-eco-friendly home furnishings? While we don’t exclusively sell eco-friendly furniture and provide other options, our goal is to provide access to more environmentally friendly products to the masses, making sustainable living a mainstream choice. We think the conscientious consumer depends upon eco-friendy home furnishing when it comes to decorating the home. We know the more successful we are in this endeavor, the more products will be manufactured and made available through our suppliers.
