Earth Day is the perfect chance to remind our fantastic followers of the brands that build with Mother Earth in mind. Responsible manufacturing and sustainability are always at the forefront of these eco-friendly designers. Check out some of our super-chic, environmental stewards of the juvenile furniture world:
Part of Oeuf’s mission first and foremost is to ‘Be Good to the Planet’…see their quote below on what this means to them:
Be good to the planet.
Use natural, renewable, recyclable materials that emphasize conservation and lead to environmentally sound products. Employ eco-conscious manufacturing processes that promote sustainability.
Be Good™ is not just something we say, it’s something we mean. As parents, we want our children to inherit a world that is better than we found it. As Oeuf, we have the ability to make that happen.
Not only are they living up to this mission but they are producing some of the top-rated, quality, designer pieces that are sought after by the environmentally conscious community. The new Oeuf Rhea Crib is the latest in their line and it is already a hit!
Sustainability isn’t just a buzzword for Kalon Studios…every decision they make is baked in responsible manufacturing. Here’s what they have to say about their efforts:
At Kalon Studios, we make every effort to be as green and sustainable as can be. In our efforts to find sustainable solutions to manufacturing, we’ve engaged the newest and sometimes the oldest methods and materials.
We’ve used raw materials that are renewable, biodegradable, non-toxic and food safe. We’ve finished our woods with an oil we developed that is so green, so-non toxic that it’s practically food grade.
We’ve made use of the industries most local to us in our manufacturing.
For us, sustainability is defined as having multiple intentions all of which center on the idea of balance, of giving as much as we take, be it through economics, the environment or on the everyday human level.
The Kalon Studios Caravan Crib is a gorgeous example of these practices brought to light.
Spot on Square‘s Robert and Nicole Springer launched their brand with this in mind ‘the home environment should be surrounded by simple, eco-conscious, quality products that promote an appreciation for design’. With that in mind, they use high-end materials and hardware including eco-friendly green grade MDF made from 100% recycled wood content. The beautiful Oliv Crib is an pure example of how their mission comes together.
Mom Mom Furniture is committed to sourcing eco-friendly products such as their Russian Baltic Birch for their fun and design forward toy boxes and tables. Paired with low VOC, water-based polyurethane, these products are handmade in the U.S.A. in woodworking shops powered by steam to even further reduce their footprint. We simply can’t get enough of the Maude Toy Box with cubby!
There are so many reasons to choose a brand that considers the health of the environment into their planning, not the least of which is the comfort you get in knowing your child is protected from toxic elements and in knowing you are doing your part to keep this world green for the next generation!
