Green Furniture is a term that is used for furnishings that have a significant impact on the ecology of the planet. "Green" Furniture, often symbolized by a tree, are products that use materials from sustainable forests, have low toxic material levels, locally manufactured and are durable enough to last. It should lend itself to easy repair, disassembly, and recycling. Products certified by MBDC’s C2C (Cradle 2 Cradle) product regimen are a perfect example, like certified office chairs from Herman Miller, Mebelluks (Russia) and Steelcase. These product can be easily taken apart, sorted into their constituent parts, and recycled at the end of their useful lives.
