WHY BUY RECYCLED, ORGANIC FURNITURE?

People have shown increased interest in organic furniture in recent years. It is made from natural products and is appealing to the eco friendly. Wooden furniture is made of natural woods and the fabrics used are made from material like cotton and wool. These items are often hand crafted and are of high quality.

One reason that people get organic furniture is that it improves indoor air quality. Massed produced furniture can contain toxins, particularly if made in another country. These fabrics may have unknown properties that people can have adverse reactions to. People may have allergies to certain substances in fabrics and develop a reaction from contact to the skin or through the air. Fabrics made from organic materials are free of chemicals and can enhance health. Another reason people buy organic furniture is that it is often handcrafted by skilled craftsman. The quality of the furniture is such that it will last a long time and can be passed on to younger family members. Products are often made in America and may even have been made locally. By buying this furniture, people are supporting American and local businesses.

Organic furniture benefits the environment and is made from recycled or sustainable materials. How they are manufactured differs from mass produced furniture in that more fossil fuels may have been used to make it in a manufacturing facility and harmful chemicals may be used. Also, furniture made in other countries is imported to this country. The energy used to bring the furniture in has a negative impact on the environment.

Organic furniture may be more expensive than mass produced furniture due to the high quality of material and skill to make them. However you do get what you pay for in quality of the material and the skill in the manufacturing process. These items may eventually become loved family heirlooms.

Organic furniture can of course bring benefits beyond helping the environment and overall health benefits. For some individuals, a good piece of furniture can be the focal point of a room and, in a sense, a piece of art. Choices from modern to traditional can satisfy the tastes of a wide audience. Choosing the right piece of furniture can bring joy to just about anyone and by going organic, you will not only help the environment but you’ll be helping yourself.
