Earth Day Network’s year-round mission is to broaden, diversify and activate the environmental movement worldwide, through a combination of education, public policy, and consumer campaigns.
At Bevlan Office Interiors we believe that celebrating Happy Earth Day is never too late, as with our alliance with the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) that is a continuous relationship we uphold all year around.
The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) is an international non profit organization certification that guarantees that all wood from office furniture manufacturers are sourced from well-managed forests. We source from manufacturers who maintain ecosystems and establish these long-term management practices. ‘Eco friendly’, ‘green’, ‘sustainable’ are strong statements in the office furniture world.
Our relationship with manufacturers who have the FSC certification promotes responsible management of the world’s forests. They certify that timber products are supported by NGOs including WWF, Greenpeace and the Woodland Trust. As far as we are concerned the FSC is the ‘gold standard’ in forest certification for the longevity of sustainable office furniture.
What to look for in Eco Office Furniture?
Buying eco-friendly desks, chairs, cabinets, space dividers, and other furniture is getting more and more popular and affordable. Government agencies, universities, and corporations specifying greener products, environmental options are making green a global trend. Like the beautiful ‘Element’ Desk we show above, office desks should be made of 100% solid wood, FSC or PEFC certified or recycled wood and built to last a lifetime.
Consider some of the following from your Office Furniture Dealer:
- Is the wood sustainably harvested and recycled, bio-based, or made from nontoxic materials
- Made with glues, paints, foams, and other ingredients that do not give off noxious odors. air pollution. Greener solutions include powder-based finishing coats, which not only are VOC-free
Why you should choose a greener office?
Sustainable furniture = responsible production. Responsible production to us means being aware of the environmental impact of the office furniture we supply. What environmental harm could office furniture possibly cause? Furniture making has traditionally been a problematic source of emissions in this eco-conscious world. There is growing consideration given to what happens to furniture after it fulfils its useful life. The major makers of office furniture have undertaken big changes and we support them as Office Furniture dealers.
