Sustainability – my introduction
I first learned about sustainability while studying landscape architecture in college and then urban planning in graduate school. That framed the way I view the world, the environment, the importance of cities and the problems of unmanaged or poorly managed growth. When sustainability is ignored, the result is unfettered sprawl and urban decline. The unintended impacts (environmental, fiscal, livability or otherwise) are shared by all of us and moreover are passed to future generations.
Applying the concept of sustainability to furniture is what Urban Table Works is all about. We continually strive to minimize our impact on the environment, to keep it safe and healthy, and to use materials that do not deplete natural resources, in particular FSC certified bamboo. Bamboo is durable (similar in hardness to oak) and can be made into beautiful furniture. We also offer eco-safe stains and finishes with low or no volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Our tables not only reflect urban living in their sustainability, but their distinctive style and clean lines reflect living in a sophisticated, vibrant urban environment.
So…what about green, sustainable, eco-safe furniture?
