Green furniture, often symbolized by a tree, are products that use materials from sustainable forests, have low toxic material levels, are locally manufactured and durable enough to last. Products should lend themselves 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 products can be easily taken apart, sorted into their constituent parts, and recycled at the end of their useful lives.
