Right off the bat – you must be wondering as to what is sustainable furniture. This kind of furniture is also referred as industrial or recycled furniture.

Presently, manufacturers are considering all aspects of the design and manufacturing process – in an effort to address the environmental impact of furniture products on the environment.

It takes into consideration the employment of recycled materials during the manufacturing process. In addition, the usage of the same furniture for disassembling and recycling purpose. The idea of sustainable furniture design is to create a closed-loop cycle. In order to avoid disposal in landfills – the closed-loop process intends to have all the materials and products perpetually recycled.

Based on the methods and materials used and also on different phases of their production – many of the products that we use in our daily life are designated as ‘organic’ and ‘green’. The word ‘organic’ alone is not everything to lookout for, when it comes to beautifying your home.

You will have to take a lot of things in to consideration like: the type of wood and its source, the finishes and materials used, and a FSC certification – Forest Stewardship Council.

Extremely environmentally friendly is mango wood and it is typically produced on mango plantations. After any kind of fruit production, the trees are then, only harvested for wood. At roughly 20 years of age, the fruit production stops. Later, the harvested trees are immediately replanted.
