Ethically Sourced Furniture

Ethically-Sourced-FurnitureToday we're sending out thanks to Krisitn Hunt, senior editor at Green Matters magazine. In her article Kristin asks readers where does your furniture come from? "The answer is often disappointing. Lots of furniture brands rely on imported materials of questionable origin to construct their pieces, and they aren't exactly upfront about it, either. But these five companies prove an exception with their sustainable sourcing practices."

Ethically Sourced Furniture & Forest Conservation

From the start, we built Vermont Woods Studios on a foundation of forest conservation. We knew that much of today's furniture is imported from developing countries that cannot ensure sustainable practices. Thus our planet's precious rainforests have been under attack by the global timber, flooring and furniture industries for decades. Rainforests are disappearing at a rate of 1.5 acres every minute. The trees are being transformed into cheap furniture and that's what's sold at most of the furniture stores in America.

Sustainable Lumber Sources

We created Vermont Woods Studios as a way to raise awareness about rainforest destruction and persuade people to buy ethically sourced furniture. All of our wood comes from North American forests that are professionally managed for sustainability. Most wood is sourced within 500 miles.
