We are delighted to announce, as part of our continued and growing concern for our planet, that EAST Furniture & Interiors have been accepted as members of the Sustainable Furnishings Council.
The Sustainable Furnishings Council is a non-profit balanced coalition of industry players founded at High Point, North Carolina in October 2006 to promote sustainable practices among manufacturers, retailers, and consumers alike. The SFC recognizes the overwhelming scientific consensus that our world is experiencing dangerous global climate change. SFC members acknowledge the tremendous urgency, and take immediate steps to minimize carbon emissions, waste stream pollutants, un-recyclable content and primary materials from unsustainable sources from any product platform under their control.
SFC members utilize Life Cycle Assessment as the best method for analyzing the environmental impact of their products, and a verifiable chain of custody as the only acceptable method for tracking wood flow.
SFC members support the triple bottom line of PEOPLE - PLANET - PROFITS and lead the industry in developing awareness of best practices throughout their supply chains. Members accomplish this goal by increasing their purchases from suppliers that show continual improvement toward meeting our high standards.
Our goals are as follows:
- To raise awareness of the sustainability issue
- To assist companies in adopting good practices
- To serve as an information clearing house
- To create a symbol of assurance for consumers
We are all looking forward to working with the team at SFC and developing our sustainable practices.
