The trend toward consciously selecting sustainable and ‘green’ choices in our purchase decision-making is continuing to rise. With increasing selection and choices in everything from electric cars, solar panels, and sustainable food choices, just to name a few, it is becoming easier to adopt these environmental best practices throughout your life.
One area that is sometimes overlooked but is also making great strides is home decoration and furniture. Sustainable furniture can include anything that aims to reduce negative impact on the environment – everything from the design process, the materials, how the product is transported and the actual manufacturing process.
Sustainable furniture may also be manufactured from recycled, repurposed or easily renewable materials. Products are increasingly made of bamboo and other organic materials, for example.
You can also look to the manufacturing process and evaluate products based on the manufacturer’s commitment to reducing carbon emissions, encouraging eco-friendly practices, and using sustainable and responsible production methods.
There are an increasing number of affordable and eco-friendly furniture options available so it is very easy to find beautiful furniture for a conscious home. Sklar Furnishings is proud to offer stylish sustainable furniture pieces to our clients. Here are just a few:
