Imagine my excitement when I read about Crate & Barrel's new environmental initiative!
- Eco-friendly upholstery - The majority of the upholstered sofa and chair frames are certified sustainable by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) or other conservation organizations. The petroleum-based foam cushions are being replaced with soy and corn-based foam and fiber cushions.
- Eco-friendly outdoor wood collections - The woods used in the outdoor furniture are certified sustainable.
- Furniture and housewares in collaboration with the TFT (Tropical Forest Trust) - The hardwoods are sourced from plantations that are responsibly and socially managed for their long-term conservation. Some teak and mahogany collections are TFT-supported through the entire production process (harvest to final production).
- Green kitchen, bed, and bath - Using sustainable bamboo, renewable acacia wood, recycled materials, 100% certified organic cotton (free of artificial dyes), and natural plant fibers.
Crate & Barrel helps make eco-friendly goods with great design more accesible and affordable. Hooray!
I especially love the Seguro media console (1st image, right) made of reclaimed Peroba wood with refined mahogany. Probably even more amazing in person.
