Why You Should Go for Eco-Friendly Furniture

May 30, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 219

Being eco-friendly is not a trend, it is a need. By purchasing environmentally accessible products, we avoid deforestation, process that has such a massive effect on climate change that Indonesia and Brazil are now the third and fourth largest emitters of carbon dioxide on the planet.

Until now, our economies have been based on consumer spending which does not necessarily result in sustainable growth. It is time to make our purchasing decisions on how durable and Earth- friendly an item is. Organic sustainable furniture is a great choice for a modern home and for people who are interested in living their lives with as little environmental impact as possible.

What is organic sustainable furniture? Organic generally means that an item has been produced without the use of man-made chemicals. That means that any fabric or stuffing used to make a piece of furniture was made with fibres grown without the use of chemical herbicides, pesticides and fertilizers. Additionally, the production of the piece itself did not add chemical flame retardants or other chemicals to the mix. Sustainable products are those products providing environmental, social and economic benefits while protecting public health, welfare, and environment over their full commercial cycle, from the extraction of raw materials to final disposition.

Sustainable forest management will help us to maintain the health of the ecological systems of the land on which it is planted, including protection of soil, water and biodiversity.The development of an eco-friendly timber and furniture industry is essential to ensure that natural resources will be available for future needs. The use of environmentally friendly products helps us to maintain biological diversity; regulate forest productive capacity; protect forest ecosystem health and vitality, and contribute to carbon cycles. Besides natural, cultural, social and economic benefits, there are health benefits. After all, organic eco accessible furniture has been done from non toxic, renewable materials. Furniture done from poisonous substances can start an indoor air peculiarity badly. Everyone should be conscious of the kinds of chemicals they bring home, but especially if you have kids, pets, or other family members who are low to the ground and prone to licking things. With eco accessible seat we can be certain which a production routine didn't mistreat a surroundings in any way.

Most people think about organics when it comes to organic foods or even clothing but they don't often think about things like mattresses, paint and furniture that can also be purchased in more organic and sustainable forms.

Being eco-friendly does not need a great effort. We're all trying to do the right thing across our countries. We recycle bottles, paper and cans, we bring reusable shopping bags to the grocery, and we even buy fuel-efficient cars. Basically, most of us know the routines and are very diligent about making a difference. We should start having the same approach when we buy house hold furniture. So, the next time that you buy a table or a garden furniture set make sure that it has been manufactured in a eco-friendly way.
