IT AIN’T EASY BEING GREEN
The Arrangement has a story to tell and we’ve been telling it for over 29 years. The elements we use are Eco-friendly (now “sustainable”). Working with found objects or trees fallen in a storm, Artisans will travel for days to claim it and will use it in a most creative manner.
We did a rough calculation on our inventory and it consists of 23% recycled products. The Arrangement has always been sustainable and is focused on providing leadership for others in ecological responsibility. From using Eco-friendly products, and companies that have sustainable practices, to supporting small single-family operations, The Arrangement’s aim is to make as great a positive impact on the planet as possible.
The Arrangement joined The Sustainable Furnishings Council 5 years ago. The SFC is an educational and marketing organization, promoting healthy environments, inside and outside. A balanced coalition of home furnishings industry players, SFC was founded to promote sustainable practices among furniture manufacturers, retailers, and consumers alike.
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 and health 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.
