CLIMATE CRISIS

The Environmental
Challenges We Face

The world is in a state of climate emergency – days are getting warmer, landfills are bursting, and sea levels rising. While climate change may occur naturally, increased rate of human activities since the 19th century has driven shifts in the climate, causing global warming to happen at an alarming rate.

Our planet’s finite resources are depleting rapidly while the natural environment is tainted with actions of humankind including deforestation and plastic pollution.

Climate Change Climate Change

Global Warming

Production of greenhouse gases from burning of fossil fuels causes rise in temperatures that drives environmental degradation, natural disasters, weather extremes, food and water insecurity and more.

Deforestation Deforestation

Deforestation

Trees inevitably hold the key to our climate issue, but mass destruction of forests continues to persist and affect ecosystems, climate, and even increases risk for zoonotic diseases spreading to humans.

Plastic Waste Plastic Waste

Plastic Pollution

An estimate of 14 million tons of plastic waste make their way into the oceans every year, harming the marine ecosystem and threatening our food and water security.

TAKING ACTIONS

Our Commitment Towards Sustainable Design

We believe that creating beautiful and functional furniture should not come at the expense of our planet.

With the planet suffering from the demand for the production of new materials which are subsequently wasted, it has never been more essential to think differently about waste.

That’s why we have made a commitment to sustainability, taking a proactive approach to reduce our environmental impacts as far as possible, and to take greater social responsibility as a brand. Leveraging on the circular economy concept, we would like to shift our focus on turning waste into resources and extending the life of products and materials.

Our journey towards sustainability is an ongoing effort, and we aspire to be an environmentally-conscious market leader. By combining sustainability and circular production, eco-friendly materials are carefully selected to create beautiful designs that are timeless and long-lasting.

SPOTLIGHT ON SUSTAINABLE MATERIALS

#1. Coffee Waste

Globally, more than 2 billion cups of coffee are sold everyday, generating some 40,000 tonnes of coffee grounds.

Either buried or discharged into waterways, spent coffee grounds contribute to our food waste and pollution issues. While it is an organic waste that can decompose naturally, coffee grounds that end up in landfills may be subjected to anaerobic decomposition that gives off large amounts of methane.

Thanks to its thermal insulation, bacteria resistance and deodorising features, coffee grounds can be recycled with the potential to become a new low-carbon material and an alternative material to wood for construction and home decoration sectors.

Step into a more sustainable future with our collection of eco-friendly chairs made by combining spent coffee grounds (41%) and recycled plastic pellets (42%) – these timeless designs are durable, toxic-free and easy-to-clean!

How It Is Made

Combined with plant fiber and fatty acid, the used coffee grounds are mixed together with plastic pellets, and then injected into a mould machine to create the shape of the seat.

#2. Ocean-Bound Plastic (OBP)

“We have to reduce plastic from entering the ocean. Once it’s in the ocean, pretty much the game is over.” – Jan Pachner, Secretary-General of One Ocean Foundation

OBP refers to abandoned plastic waste at risk of ending up in the ocean. Every year, around 10 million tonnes of plastic waste enters our oceans including plastic bags, bottles and single-use packaging.

Taking over 100 years to fully decompose, marine plastics may float, sink or break down into microplastics. The latter is often mistaken as food by marine animals, causing injuries and deaths. We, too, are not immune to unknowingly eating microplastics as we indulge in seafood cuisine.

In the manufacturing process, plastic litter is collected and converted into plastic pellets, which are then melted and shaped into plastic chairs by molding machines. Our collection of ocean-friendly chairs is made up of 40% of these recycled pellets, and they are of high durability with some being stackable to cater to F&B businesses.

#3. Recycled Wood & Plastic

Replacing natural wood in this composite, wood fiber is sustainable as it is just an excess or by-product coming from different stages of timber production.

Also known as wood-plastic composite (WPC), this composite mix is made of wood fiber, or wood flour, and thermoplastics. The used wood waste keeps the trees’ carbon sequestration and doesn’t contribute to more deforestation.

In our sustainable collection, we combined wood fibers with recycled and virgin plastics to create beautiful and functional pieces that are easy-to-clean and highly durable. This eco-friendly material is best used for outdoor furniture, like our Fossil Collection, as they have anti-UV properties.

Check out our best-selling Ohio fluted bases that are fire-retardant and formaldehyde-free – they can be matched with eco-friendly tabletops like Rubberwood and Sintered Stone to create a dining table that is pretty for your home and friendly to the environment.

#4. Rubberwood

Rubber trees are considered as renewable resources – this fast-growing species can be harvested in just 30 years as compared to traditional hardwoods that take up to 100 years.

Commercially developed specifically for rubber latex production, these plantations involve the cultivation of rubber trees in large-scale agricultural settings, and when done responsibly, rubber production can increase carbon sequestration to slow down global warming.

After the trees are harvested to serve its primary purpose of producing latex, they are given a second life to be timbers and lumbers instead of being burnt or discarded. Harvesting wood from rubber trees reduces the burden on tropical forests to address demands for wood, and eventually, less trees will be cut down from forests.

Due to its structural strength and aesthetic appeal, rubberwood is perfect to be made into bulky furniture such as dining tables, TV consoles and bed frames that boast elegance and high durability. Each piece of rubberwood furniture is unique with its own character and distinct woodgrains, making it one of a kind.

#5. FSC-Certified

A natural solution to slow climate change – forests regulate our climate, clean the air we breathe, and filter the water we drink.

The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) is an international non-profit organisation established to promote responsible management of forests all over the globe. Healthy forests enable humanity to thrive, making them one of the most important resources on Earth as they touch so many areas of our lives. FSC warrants that trees are harvested responsibly so there is no net loss of forest over time and ensures that illegal logging and other harmful practices do not occur.

Our wood furniture is crafted with materials from well-managed forests under FSC while some are combined with recycled materials and by-products of wood-processing.

BEYOND ECO-FRIENDLY

Every Small Step Matters For A Better Environment, Better Tomorrow

Reduced Ecological Footprint

The manufacturing of eco-friendly products come with lower environmental impact as it generates less pollution and waste. When using recycled materials in the makeup of furniture products, the planet’s finite natural resources are spared and this is important to slow down global warming.

Community Awareness

Closing the loop is not just the job of one or two parties. Introducing greener products to our customers gives us the chance to share our commitment and spread awareness on the importance of being eco-conscious. We hope to be joined by like-minded individuals as we strive towards sustainability, creating more durable furniture with safe and recycled materials.

Health Benefits

Not just for Mother Nature, but for you too! Some traditional furniture uses materials and adhesives that release harmful VOCs (volatile organic compounds), such as formaldehyde. Our eco-friendly furniture is made mindfully without the use of toxic substance to create a safer space for both our customers and the environment.

Towards A Circular Economy

“In our current economy, we take materials from the Earth, make products from them, and eventually throw them away as waste – the process is linear. In a circular economy, by contrast, we stop waste being produced in the first place.”
– Ellen MacArthur Foundation
