Sustainable Furniture

Does Sustainable Furniture make ethical furniture?

Founded in 2007 by Margaret Larson, Sustainable Furniture is an above-benchmark furniture brand within The Good Shopping Guide’s Ethical Furniture sector.

As a top-rated brand, all Sustainable Furniture needs to do to be awarded Ethical Accreditation is to apply. The Good Shopping Guide would offer Sustainable Furniture some advice on how to raise its score even higher before awarding it with our ethical and sustainable certification.

Do you want to find out how other brands within the Ethical Furniture sector score compared to Sustainable Furniture? Visit the Furniture Ethical Ratings Table. Our Ratings Table can help you to learn more about the criteria that our top-rated brands have had to meet to reach our minimum Ethical Benchmark.

The Good Shopping Guide suggests that all brands follow the example set by our top-rated brands and adopt more ethical practices before applying for Ethical Accreditation.

What makes Sustainable Furniture a top-rated brand?

Sustainable Furniture has a Sustainability page which discusses the company’s dedication to ethical sourcing, sustainable forestry and sustainable materials. Sustainable Furniture works with non-profits and is a member of the FLEGT Licenced Timber Initiative which aims to address illegal logging. Sustainable Furniture also performs well in our Armaments, Animal Welfare and Human Rights categories because of its lack of negative records.

Does Sustainable Furniture have any middle or bottom ratings?

Unfortunately, Sustainable Furniture receives a middle rating for its Timber Sourcing Policy. On its Sustainability page, it demonstrates that it has a clear understanding of the issue. However, the page does not offer many details on the percentage of recycled or reclaimed wood products, nor does it mention an FSC certification.

What can Sustainable Furniture do to improve its score? 

The top score that Sustainable Furniture has been awarded in the Ethical Furniture sector is the outcome of an assessment of multiple ethical criteria.

As an above-benchmark brand, all Sustainable Furniture needs to do is get in touch and apply for Ethical Accreditation. By doing so, we could offer it our ethical certification and some advice on how to make its score rise even further on the Furniture Ethical Ratings Table.
