Being a sustainable company may be trendy now, but how do you know if what you’re buying is truly sustainable?
Our company was founded with the mission to save the rainforest. If you don’t know, we are a wood furniture company that uses only sustainably harvested wood from here in the Northeast. It’s been 10 years and we still guarantee that. Now it seems big name brands to celebrities are getting in on the action. With so many products and brands now claiming sustainable practices and resources, it may be hard to tell if the products you’re using really are eco-friendly.
We often take weeks or even months to pick out our furniture and make sure it's perfect for our family and our home. But have you ever wondered where your furniture comes from? More and more people are feeling that the origin and crafting of their furniture is just as important as the look, style and feel of it. Families want to know that they have made a socially and environmentally responsible choice with regard to how their furniture is made.
Over the past several years, over half of our handcrafted furniture has been made with natural cherry wood. It's not a species that grows very well in Vermont so we use wood from the Allegheny forest region of Pennsylvania, which is known for its sustainable forest management practices.
