Speaking of green culture, eco furniture is the next happening thing in
the world of home and office décor. Eco home furniture segment offers
different styles from solid wood traditional designs, to quite up-to-date
modern and modular furniture.

Environment friendly furniture not only helps with a good cause, it is
specially crafted in such a manner that it has minimum negative impact on
the environment. It is sourced from renewable resources and there are few
or no chemicals used that result in harming the environment. Herbal oils
and polish is used to minimize the toxic levels. Furniture crafted from
recycled material and which also can be recycled also falls under the
same category.


Green living ensures that we do not burden the environment and also burn
off precious energy from virgin resources. You can easily find great
modern and traditional home designs in furniture that is unique and
economical and as enticing as other furniture made from regular sources.
Often, green furniture is considered boring and quite unexciting. But
that is not the case, and you can find many creative designers crafting
fabulous pieces of furniture for the environment friendly buffs who care
about their actions.

Certification : There are different certifications you can watch out for
while buying furniture like FSC, LEED certification and look out for
other factors like whether the furniture you buy is sourced from
renewable or recyclable sources and whether the furniture you buy is also
recyclable. Following are some points you may like to pay attention to

• The furniture can be made from rapid renewable or sustainable material
like bamboo or cork. Also, recycled materials can also be any material
previously used like factory scraps, salvaged or post-consumer material
like old furniture or items disposed off. Also, materials that have gone
through very little processing such as natural granite, stone, slate, and
wood are also considered green, as they expend little energy during the
manufacturing process.
• Non-toxic: The furniture should be free from chemicals and compounds.
It should reduce or completely eliminate the use of toxic chemicals for
production and finish such as chlorine, wood preservatives such as
creosote and PVC which depletes the ozone and are labeled ‘green’.
• Depletion of natural resources: High operational costs for a
manufacturing can have a negative impact on the environment. The costs
include electricity and other natural resources, including costs on
packaging. Green products are the ones that are minimally packaged,
preferably with recycled materials. Also, handmade products that do not
consume much fuel are also eco-friendly.
• Multifunctional furniture not sourced from protected forests, uses
recycled material that is eco-friendly and also reduces the cost of
transportation as also reduces trash on earth can be termed eco-friendly.
• There is a eco-friendly stream of building products that reduce the
impact of environment to create a healthy and green system. Bamboo for
instance is a fast growing grass and when used as a building material
like flooring etc, it can contribute in eco-friendly homes and
construction, and is certified by LEED points recognized as a green
effort to architects.

There are simple facts about environment-friendly furniture and furniture
designers are realizing its importance in fashioning furniture that is
not just green, but thoughtful in the most practical sense. For we all
can in some way contribute to the green culture that is not just in
vogue, but also the right thing. And the designs follow the trendier
path, even with its functionality and it’s really a fashion statement to
embrace green living as part of everyday life.
