Where is it made
This eco-friendly furniture is made in the USA. It is created from start to finish in one of four manufacturing facilities located in North Carolina. Additionally, 98% of the components are sourced domestically, many right from the same state. This makes your purchase one that supports local businesses, creates local jobs, and reduces CO2 emissions by reducing traditional production transportation cost.
What is it made of
Starting from the inside out, any springs in the furniture are made of up to 80% recycled metal and the wooden frames are certified by the Forestry Stewardship Council (FSC) and sourced from a certified sustainable forest. Frames are bonded with a soy-based resin. Each piece offers soy-based, renewable seat cushions with 30% soybean oil, which reduces the amount of petroleum-based products made. Each back and throw pillow is filled with 100% recycled fibers created from plastic bottles. The piece's seat deck and trim pads are made up of 80% regenerated fibers. And finally, the finishing process is very low in Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC).
Why does this matter
Manufacturing in a way that bears in mind sustainability and consumer health is impactful in many ways. It is most important for our environment. The manufacturer of this product stands in partnership with the Sustainable Forestry Initiative. The SFI is based on the premise that we can protect our forests and also produce the goods our economy needs. The wooden frame in this furniture piece was harvested with a set of principles in mind that combine the growing and harvesting of trees with initiatives for the long-term protection of forest environments. Additionally, the soy-based polyol used in the cushions replaces 30% of petroleum-based chemicals that would typically be used to manufacture these cushions. Not only does this preserve our natural, nonrenewable resources, but also it is important in creating a healthier home environment. For every million pounds of petroleum-based polyols replaced with soy-based polyols, nearly 2,200 barrels of crude oil is saved.
There are artists, crafters, makers, builders, carpenters and all other types of artisans right here in our own backyards, and our hope is that when you think of beautiful, handcrafted products from across the globe, you think of them too. Buying domestically can be more eco-conscious, as it reduces transportation needs and consequently the energy and natural resources expended in the process; this makes us huge proponents of shopping locally.
