Eco-friendly Electric Fireplaces

Electric Fireplaces

Electric fireplaces are a sustainable home addition. Unlike gas and wood burning fireplaces, they have no emissions such as carbon monoxide. They do not require wood or fossil fuels to use and are energy-efficient. Also, electric fireplaces heat only the room you’re using. This stops unnecessary energy waste and loss of money heating your whole home.

Eco-friendly Alder Wood Furniture

Alder Wood

Alder regenerates naturally and prolifically and flourishes in areas where other species may not survive. It has unique nitrogen-fixing properties that provide fertility to the soil where it grows, assisting other species to survive. Since Alder develops so quickly, it prevents soil erosion and protects other more delicate and slow-growing species.

Greenguard Certified

Greenguard Certification

Products that are Greenguard Certified have been tested and scientifically proven to have low chemical emissions. They're guaranteed to give off low levels of volatile organic compounds, or VOCs. VOCs are carbon-based chemicals that become vapors or gases. Wall paint, flooring and mattresses all give off these harmful emissions. They're responsible for that "new car smell." Indoor air can be two to five times more polluted than outdoor air, so Greenguard Certification shows that the certified products have low levels of chemical emissions, making it safer for the home. Greenguard Gold Certification means the products have even lower levels of VOCs, making them safe for kids and classrooms.
