Organic Club Sofa in Hemp Fabric

 

 

Hello organic couch from Bean Products, Inc.!! I want it for many a reason but honestly the price is such a deterrent. I get it is organic hemp and a sofa bed, you have 17 fabric colors to choose from and you can even choose the colors for the feet and it’s hand crafted! The wood used is sustainably harvested and the cushion’s can even biodegrade. There are soo many amazing green qualities to this piece of furniture. You can tell that Bean Products, Inc. really goes out of its way to offer you a high quality and highly responsible piece of furniture however that being said I feel like even some of the most dedicated greenies who would love to purchase this comfy little tid bit couldn’t because of the price when you can find furniture for much less than that at many other chain stores. I don’t advocate shopping at the big chains when there are greener alternatives but especially in tough economic times we really have to find a way to make green products more affordable to everyone. I would buy this couch in an instant (as I am definitely in need of a new one) but I can’t invest $5200 in a couch when many places offer 7 piece furniture sets for around that price. I’m n0t sure if you are like me and want to support green businesses as much as possible but with things like this I can’t no matter how much I want it and how much I’d rather put my money towards this than come plastic couch from China I can’t invest that much money in anything that frivolous right now. I don’t know too many people who could and the people I do know who could wouldn’t shop at Bean Products, Inc. anyway but that is an entirely different story.

Eco-Friendly Office Chair

I don’t know how many of you sit in an office all day but I know I do and I always wonder what other choices of seating we could have that might be better than what we are currently sitting on. I know the cushy faux leather or cloth monstrosities always look uber comfy but maybe we could do better than that. After all after a short amount of time these chairs get worn and thrown out to go where? In a landfill? I wonder how long it would take to break down considering they are mostly metal and man-made materials? Where do these large clunky chairs go when they are old and worn?
To answer my queries I found a sort of solution! HON – 7800 Series High-Back Executive Chair is made from 36% recycled content.  HON also makes a simpler less comfy looking chair that is 64% recycled content! Now that you know maybe you could talk your boss into purchasing alternatives now!
