Eco-Friendly Designs for Earth DayApril 22, 2014
Recycling and public transportation aren’t the only ways to reduce your carbon footprint this Earth Day. Go green year-round with our selection of sustainable (and oh so stylish) Copeland Furniture, available in-store now. Here’s how:
- Local – based in Vermont, the state with the highest ecological standards in America, Copeland keeps things local by only accepting lumber from within a 500-mile radius.
- Ethical – Copeland is Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified, ensuring that their materials come from forests that are not ecologically threatened, do not have high conservation significance and do not contain genetically modified trees.
- Official – one of few companies awarded the prestigious Silver Exemplary Membership Status by the Sustainable Furnishings Council (SFC), Copeland uses 15-25% FSC-certified (or equivalent) wood, 1-25% non-wood products made from recycled or bio-based materials, has completed a carbon footprint report and is committed to making supply chain improvements as a result of sustainability efforts.
Rooted in values of preservation and environmental stewardship, this award-winning brand demonstrates that high style is possible, even for the low-impact environmentally conscious crowd. Mother Nature would be so proud.
