Smart Furniture Choices Promote Sustainability

Posted by Karyl Walker on Mon, Jul 27, 2020 @ 09:57 AM

The effort to promote eco-conscious living often neglects to incorporate smart decisions about the furniture we use every day. Making responsible choices about these essential products can make a world of difference for your immediate environment and for the planet.

Sustainable furniture uses materials with low environmental impact and employs an enduring design. Moreover, furniture with durable construction will result in less turnover, maximizing value for your operation. Conversely, items that are cheap in both price and construction will quickly end up filling precious space at the local landfill. The collective impact of these important purchasing decisions can be staggering. According to national data provided by the Environmental Protection Agency, the total amount of furniture and furnishings taken to U.S. landfills increased from 7.6 million tons in 2005 to nearly 9.7 million tons by 2015.

Furniture Concepts' signature TOUGH STUFF! line emphasizes durability and cost-effectiveness. Built from solid wood construction to support years of heavy use, these pieces offer an ideal option for group living and other high-traffic environments. These items, protected by a 10-year warranty, will remain attractive and comfortable over time. They offer a smart choice that will minimize your entire operation's impact on the environment. 

Sustainable furniture uses materials derived from renewable sources, as well as minimal harmful pollutants that can be released into the air. The reduced environmental impact, both during construction and over years of use, represents a win-win during this time of increased environmental awareness on the local and global levels. Choices such as TOUGH STUFF! save finite resources and offer peace of mind to environmentally conscious leaders. The decisions made about the most common products used in our daily lives carry huge implications for the viability of the planet.
