Every Day is Earth Day at City Furniture

Every Day is Earth Day

WHEN YOU TAKE CARE OF THE ENVIRONMENT, YOU HELP ENSURE THE FUTURE OF THE HUMAN RACE.

At City Furniture, we are proud to be a business that considers the environment, and we have built a culture that embraces the movement for a cleaner planet. Below are some of the things we do to make the world a better place:

  • We have been recycling all office and showroom paper waste since 1980.
  • We are founding members of the Sustainable Furnishings Council.
  • Our merchants ensure that all the wood used in our furniture comes from sustainable forests.
  • Kevin Charles Upholstery has been using cushions made out of soy since 2008.
  • We recycle all of our packaging.

Starting from within, we built a state-of-the-art recycling center in our warehouse in 2001, where we recycle over 95 percent of all packaging materials. We bale all of our cardboard waste and send it to a local paper recycling mill that makes products like gift boxes and shipping boxes. We also process and condense all of our Styrofoam waste and send it to a plant that reprocesses it into plastic materials to make items like picture frames and outdoor furniture.

We opened the first-ever furniture store in Florida to receive the Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design certification, also known as LEED. The iconic structure opened in Boca Raton in 2011 using solar tube lighting, LED lighting, and a water conservation system—with five more showrooms since following suit in Cutler Bay, West Palm Beach, and Pinecrest.

We then took our green mission on the road with yet another industry first, by converting nearly all of our 100-truck fleet to run on compressed natural gas (CNG). Benefiting the environment by producing less air pollution, CNG is also American made, thus reducing reliance on imported oil.

Naturally, we want our products to be eco-friendly as well, so we’ve taken great care to stock our showrooms with sustainable woods and alternative materials.

Outdoor

Canyon outdoor dining sets are made from reclaimed teak. “Reclaimed” means that the wood was harvested and milled decades ago, crafted into housing, furniture, or flooring, and then is re-crafted into the new furniture it is today.

  • Teak is insect, rot and moisture-resistant.
  • Using reclaimed timber helps to protect forests and natural wildlife habitats.

Sofas

All Kevin Charles sectionals and sofas use biodegradable, soy-based cushions. Using cushions made out of soy-based foam helps to lessen our carbon footprint on the earth.

  • Soybeans are a natural renewable resource.
  • Soybean based foams use less crude oil and energy to produce than conventional foams.

Mattresses

All Kevin Charles foam mattresses use soy-based foam and all-natural green tea, as well as renewable or organic ticking.

  • Soybean foam is an environmentally-friendly substitute for petroleum based chemicals.
  • Green tea is a natural deodorizer, so there’s no need for chemicals to deodorize the mattress.
