We even deepen our commitment to environmentally friendly energy by prioritizing the use of renewable resources in every aspect of the production of our products. And to help address emissions that we cannot avoid right now, we are working with Conservation International on projects that protect and restore grasslands, swamps, and forests.
Most Sohnne® products use wood, acrylic, leather, and aluminum as the main materials. This material is strong and durable, which helps your furniture last longer. While all Sohnne® devices with aluminum enclosures contain some amount of recycled aluminum, making every product carbon-free by 2030 means including more recycled content.
Eco-friendly furniture is furniture that is created in a manner that has a minimum negative impact on the environment. This means that where wood is used, it has come from renewable sources, and any chemicals used in the process do not pollute or harm the environment. Additionally, minimum resources are used, including keeping delivery and mileage to as low a level as is feasible.
Environmentally friendly furniture can also be used to describe furniture that has been created from recycled items. This is green living at its very best! Furniture made from recycled materials is the ultimate green combination of creating something new and exciting from discarded and unused items. This keeps rubbish out of landfills and reduces the need to burn precious energies used by creating something from virgin resources. Ideal materials that can be recycled into furniture are floorboards, railway sleepers, and wood cladding.
Many low-cost furniture items are not made in the U.S. Add to this the mileage involved in actually delivering furniture to stores and then to its final destination, plus the mileage incurred by the consumer as they shop around and the number of carbon emissions generated starts to get significant, increasing our carbon footprint.
