I was having a conversation the other day, about our products being eco-friendly and explaining all the reasons that make it so. It is free of harmful chemicals, there are no formaldehyde glues, sustainable wood is used, and low VOC finishes too. I explained that our eco-friendly label also means that our products are safe for kids to be around and safe to breathe around too. There are no toxic fumes to give off. This is the more important issue to me as a mom.
In my conversation, the other person had a light bulb go off. “Oh, I never thought of eco-friendly like that before,” they said. “I always thought of eco-friendly as just being good for the environment.”
Well, Sodura’s furniture is good for the environment, and that includes the environment that your children play, eat and sleep in. This got me thinking, maybe we aren’t saying exactly what we want to say by saying that we are eco-friendly, which we are, but we are more than that too. We are kid friendly. We are free of harmful chemicals. We are non toxic. We are strong and sturdy. We are peace of mind. Peace of mind that the pieces of furniture that our children use the most are not causing them harm.
What does “eco-friendly” mean to you? Does it include more than just being good for the environment?
