Vermont was recently ranked #2 in an article highlighting America’s best states to live in for 2014, just behind Hawaii. While Hawaii is great and all (tropical beach vacation… helloooo) I thought it’d be worthwhile to make a list of the top 5 reasons we love Vermont, and think it’s truly a great state to live in!

Love Vermont

1. Forests. It’s proven that spending time in nature relieves stress, anxiety and depression, among other things. The state of Vermont is covered in trees, woodlands, and meadows, leaving you with no shortage of places to spend time outside and keep you feeling good! Not to mention, we have great places to camp and hike outdoors. My drive to work consists of deer, fox, and wild turkey spottings. My day at work consists of  planting butterfly gardens and feeding the squirrels. My night consists of walks through the woods with my dog, who loves the freedom of roaming through the trees. If you’re a lover of the outdoors, Vermont is a great place for you.

 

Love Vermont

2. Seasons. I grew up in a small town in Southern California, a place where the climate was moderate and averaged around 70 degrees throughout most Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall. When I first moved to New England, I had never seen snow or experienced a crisp, Vermont autumn. I had never seen the beauty of the leaves turning so boldly or colorfully, or the major contrast between icy winters and summers only meant for swimming. Now that I’ve been here for many years, I look forward to the transition between the seasons and the ways life changes during each. It’s a special part of New England and a special part of Vermont, something non-existent in many other places around the US.

3. Commitment to local. The localvore movement is spreading across the United States, but a love for local has always been a part of Vermont’s ethos. From local cheeses, furniture, flowers, wine and beer; the culture of Vermont is one that prioritizes supporting our community and the people who work to make it great! It just so happens that Vermont is known for crafting the best of the best; the best microbrews, the best fine furniture, the best cheese, the best sweets, (and more) so we’re very lucky that supporting our local farmers, crafters and artisans is so easy!

 

Love Vermont

4. No Billboards. Take a drive down any Vermont road and you’ll notice that the only thing lining the pavement is dirt, grass, and trees. Vermonters don’t want to disturb the beauty of the natural landscape with unnecessary advertisements, giving you the perfect highways and back roads for summer road trips and autumn leaf peeping. The photo above is the road leading right to our rural Vermont showroom, Stonehurst.

 

Love Vermont

5. Sustainability.  Besides all the woodlands & wildlife, Vermont is known for being “green” in another way. Vermont is a leader in the environmental movement with its stances on conservation, its passion for supporting local agriculture, and commitment to sustainable energy use. Curbside compost and recycling is the norm in many places around Vermont, and environmental education is a field of study people across the US are journeying to Vermont learn about! Plus, you’ll find lots of bikers!  Some of our employees have even committed to biking to work sometimes instead of driving to save energy and reduce their eco-footprints.

Vermont is a great place to work, to live, and to explore… but if you can’t live here yourself, you can always take a piece of Vermont home with you by shopping for Vermont crafted furniture and home decor. Or if you find yourself at a local beer store, stay on the look out for Heady Topper, Long Trail, and Woodchuck Cider! The magic of Vermont can be found all over the place if you look for it!

Outdoor Dining Furniture

The Bayline Outdoor Dining Furniture collection is our newest collection from Polywood. We just launched it last week and we’re so excited about this new addition. It’s sustainable, casual, and the perfect outdoor dining furniture solution for the contemporary design lover. This Outdoor Dining Furniture collection incorporates modern styling with several bold, summery colors. The chairs feature a slender profile made of weather-resistant aluminum, paired with a selection of durable weather-resistant outdoor fabric options.

The sleek look of the Bayline collection and the usage of metal + fabric provide a chic alternative to Polywood’s typical furniture styling. Four frame options are available in textured or satin finishes, with side and arm chair styles in two height choices for dining and bar usage. The arm details offered are plastique or solid.

This collection can easily accommodate any outdoor space style and layout. It’s an ultra versatile set, especially when complemented with the popular Euro outdoor dining table.

Bayline Outdoor Dining Furniture Color Options:

While most of Polywood’s eco-friendly outdoor furniture comes in a variety of colors, this collection is striking in the use of colorful Sunbrella fabrics rather than RPL (recycled plastic lumber). This gives the collection a more modern, fresh look while still maintaining durability and weather resistance.

Elegance, cool sophistication, and a fresh simple look are just a few ways to describe the new Bayline Collection from POLYWOOD. Pair with our Euro style table, and you’ve got the perfect outdoor dining furniture setup for your porch, patio, or other outdoor space. This luxury collection is part of a new era of light-weight outdoor dining furniture that is sure to create the perfect focal point for your outdoor space.

Spending 8 hours a day at a desk can be tough. No matter how awesome I think my job is (I get to share the story of an eco-friendly, Vermont business via social media–how cool is that?) there are some days when sitting in front of a computer screen is just plain hard. And then there are days that remind me of why I decided to apply at Vermont Woods Studios in the first place, and yesterday was certainly one of them.

We love animals. We really do. From the creepy crawly ones that spend their time sitting in murky pond water, to the fuzzy ones you cuddle up with on your couch. We love to support the organizations that work to give them better lives too! Earlier in the year several of the Green Team members attended the Windham County Humane Society’s biggest fundraiser of the year, Wags to Riches. We even had a few donated items up for auction at the fundraiser! Fun was had and animals were helped and all in all we had a great time.

So when we saw that the Windham County Humane Society was in real need of food for the animals who stay at the shelter, we were more than eager to help out. With Peggy’s help buying a few extra bags, Nina and I gathered up some kibble and headed over to WCHS. I try not to go there too often, because I might end up coming home with something, like a new puppy, but the WCHS staff was happy and helpful and it was a great visit!

This kibble was heavy. Real heavy. Thankfully I had Nina there to do the heavy lifting. Thanks Nina!

See, I told you Nina is strong! That bag is half her size. Anyway, the WCHS staff members make great models (and check out their new T-shirts!)
