Stonehurst’s New Door Color!

Blue Doors on Stonehurst
We chose blue!

As promised in my last blog, here is the new color of the doors at Stonehurst! Blue! What is so great about it is that they aren’t a traditional door color, and we think that really fits with the personality of Vermont Woods Studios and the quirky folks who work here. While several people asked why we didn’t go with green to fit with our company colors, blue turned out to be a better fit. It brings out the natural blues of the sky and contrasts wonderfully with the white paint, plus, it’s going to look amazing once all of the landscaping and outdoor decor is in place.  I’m really happy with the way the doors turned out, and I know that the rest of the Green Team is too! But we want to know what you think about them, let us know on Facebook!

International Coastal Clean-up Day!

In case you haven’t heard, this Saturday is International Coastal
Clean-up Day,
organized by the Ocean Conservancy. This year marks their 27th
anniversary of celebrating this initiative and they don’t look to be slowing
down anytime soon. In 2011, almost 600,000 volunteers worldwide collected more
than 9 million pounds of trash from our oceanic ecosystems. These trash items,
such as cigarette butts, plastic bottles and bags and food wrappers, are
responsible for polluting our waters and endangering our wildlife.

Vermont Woods Studios makes every effort we can to support initiatives
like that of The Ocean Conservancy. In many areas of our company, you can find examples of how we support the preservation of our environment. We donate to local and national environmental organizations, we green-up our office space and we even sell recycled furniture!

Our POLYWOOD Outdoor Furniture is the perfect addition to any green home. Made from more than 90% post-consumer recycled containers like milk or detergent bottles, these pieces are constructed using a process that
makes them look and feel like real wood. Durable, beautiful furniture that doesn’t harm our environment and actually helps to keep plastic out of our oceans. How much better can you get?

Here in the office, we decorate our “beach” area with POLYWOOD and enjoy it all year long. We also have BIG plans for POLYWOOD at our new Stonehurst home. Because that’s the thing about Vermont Woods Studios:
While we are a fine, hardwood furniture company, VWS is built on sustainability and on protecting our environment.

This weekend, make plans to do something to support our oceans. Find a beach clean-up site near you, start or improve a recycling resolution in your home or office, or relax in a luxurious POLYWOOD Adirondack
Chair
. However you choose to help, you’ll be glad you did!

Outdoor Furniture, Made in America – Think Spring, Summer, Vacations – Anything But Winter

A warm* rain has finally come to Vermont to wash away some of the 4 feet of snow that’s been piled in my front yard for the longest time.  I can’t remember ever having such a snowy Febuary… and it was great fun for awhile.

But now I’m ready for Spring, and leafing through the photos of our new line of POLYWOOD outdoor patio furniture is lifting my spirits.  Manjula and Dennis are finishing putting the final touches on the outdoor furniture section of our website even as customers start receiving our first deliveries of POLYWOOD chairs, tables and chaises.

POLYWOOD furniture is 100% made in America and we are the only company I know of that offers a lifetime guarantee on it.

Besides the fact that it’s made out of recycled plastic, I love the aspect that we no longer have to clear-cut the rainforest for tropical woods like teak and mahogany that were once the only real choice for durable outdoor furniture.   It’s a win-win:  we’re taking waste out of the waste stream and we’re conserving forestlands at the same time.  Not to mention the fact that it’s beautiful and durable.

Check out this very cool outdoor patio furniture today.  Even if you’re not shopping, just looking at the pictures will help lift you out of the winter doldrums… and make you start to Think Spring.  Or summer.  Or maybe even a tropical vacation…

 

 

*In Vermont, at this time of year we can define “warm” as anything above 32F  🙂
