A few months ago a syndicated columnist, Anica Wong of Creators.com gave us a call at Vermont Woods Studios Furniture to ask, "What's so eco-friendly about your furniture?" It's a great question especially since there is so much green-washing out there. It seems that every furniture brand and furniture store is now hitting the "organic, sustainable furniture" theme in their advertisements, regardless of their environmental policies.
So anyway I told Anica that Vermont Woods Studios is not a furniture company that suddenly "went green". Actually we're a bunch of trehuggers that partnered with some of Vermont's best fine furniture makers to create a company that delivers handcrafted, Vermont-made, eco-friendly furniture to customers all across the USA. She then asked all about our story and wrote a nice article that is being syndicated in several newspapers like this one, The Calgary Herald. Check it out. And many thanks to Anica for including us in her story!
