Been waiting to purchase that fine furniture you’ve been lusting after all these many months or even years? Well, wait no more! Here’s a great reason to finalize your decisions and get your house in order today.
Vermont Woods Studios is launching it’s Fifteen Percent For the Forest initiative and Eco Furniture Sale. From Earth Day, April 22 until the Summer Solstice on June 21, 15% percent of the profits from all furniture purchased will be donated to charitable organizations working to protect the forest environment.
Choose which organization you would like to benefit from your purchase, including our favorites:
Or suggest your own favorite. As long as it is a bonafide non-profit organization, working to preserve forestlands, it’s good to go. Give us a call at 888-390-5571 for more details.
Start your shopping today! It takes awhile to find the perfect furniture for your space, especially if you have any customization in mind. The initiative ends in June. What are you waiting for?

In September, 2006, I was very fortunate to be able to join with Gerry Cooklin , Susan Inglis and a small group of visionary leaders in the furniture industry to talk about the unique status the furniture industry has as the main consumer of the forest’s most precious species. That was the birth of a non-profit now called the Sustainable Furniture Council, FSC. We are now over 100 members strong, all working to educate consumers and promote sustainable practices in our industry. Vermont Woods Studios is proud to be a founding member of this world-changing group.
