Sustainable furniture is in demand by the informed consumer, but the question they ask in this video is what exactly do we mean by sustainable or green furniture. The most important characteristic is durability. Furniture that is value engineered to be good quality, lasts for a long time and therefore requires less raw materials to make replacements. Teak wood is amongst the best examples of a durable wood which can be used to create an heirloom peace that lasts a very long time. In its simplest essence, sustainability involves the use of durable materials that are healthier and leave a smaller environmental footprint.
