Ethical Furniture – What to know before you buy

Some of us are just picky when it comes to home furnishing, and we can completely relate to this. Knowing that the furniture you buy has been made fairly and will last a long time can give you added peace of mind.

When looking for ethical furniture, it can be tricky to know where to begin. After all, there are a number of factors to consider.

We’ve put together a simple checklist for you to run through in order to ensure that your ethical furniture UK has come from a sustainable and eco-friendly source:

Production method – Has your furniture been produced in a way that minimises carbon footprint and environmental impact?

Durability – Will the furniture last more than just a few years? Ethical furniture UK will typically have long lifecycles, which means they can easily last you decades.

Materials – Have the materials used in your ethical furniture been certified by a third-party and have those materials been sourced using legal and approved methods?

Finishes – Are the coatings and protective paints on your ethical furniture non-toxic? Are they safe for your family as well as the environment?
