Difference Between Green Furniture and Sustainable Furniture

There are many companies claiming that our products are green means they are usually referring to material sourcing. Maybe the company’s sofa frames are made out of dumpster-sourced scrap metal or sofa cushions are filled with ticker tape. Responsible material sourcing is important but it does not necessarily make something sustainable, that is able to exist in perpetuity from environmental and resource consumption standpoint.  Sustainable furniture, it should be high quality and support a life style with reduced energy and resource needs. You have a piece of furniture made of the most responsibly sourced materials out there, but if it falls apart in a short time and up in a land fill, if it is designed in such a way that it is designed in such a way that it can only fit into carbon sewing it’s not sustainable. Size does not matters in sustainability here are the reasons for the same:-

  • If it is not best way of reducing our carbon footprints and natural resource consumption is used to reduce the physical foot-prints of our homes.
  • Smaller homes produce less operational carbon emissions than larger homes and are less resource intensive to build.
  • Smaller homes tend to discourage excessive consumerism mitigating that behavior’s attendant environmental impact.
  • Small homes typically support denser, friendlier communities, which by their nature allow for a reduction in associated transit emissions.

When you think about sustainable housing, the name of the game is location. A study found that an energy efficient family, suburban house and a car fuel efficient can cut your carbon footprint by 34% as compared to a conventional, sub-urban house and a car with average fuel economy. While this is a significant improvement over standard single-family home.

As one should expect, a multi-family housing units are typically smaller than single family houses. But, with a smaller albeit more environmentally-friendly-footprint can come some challenges regarding functionality, especially as a household grows or changes over time. All this is to say that furniture is only as sustainable as setting. Space-maximizing furniture solutions from resource furniture can remove some of the reasons that people move further out in search of more space, by increasing functionality without increasing the foot print. Every product from resource furniture is not only manufactured using highly sustainable methods and materials, but also provides the same level of comfort and functionality as conventional furniture pieces and they are designed and build to last.
