Haiku Designs Furniture and Mattress Company is proud to offer to the American Market several different types of Eco-Friendly Furniture classifications
1. "E-1", Off Gass Emissions Standards Certified by the European Union. The strictest standards on the Planet for Furniture.
2." ITTO", This certification by International Tropical Timber Organization states that product wood is sourced in a sustainable and managed way.
3. Eco-Friendly Bamboo Hardwood Furniture
Each of these ratings systems designate Eco-friendly furniture as being made in a manner that does not harm the environment. Not only are these platform beds, living room beds, living room and dining room furniture sets made using less toxic chemicals, paints and stains, many are made from base materials that are harvested from sustainable and managed forests.
E-1 European Off Gas Emission and Sustainable Construction
The strict “E-1”, European Union Certification for the manufacture of home and office furniture, is the highest standard in the world today. The "E-1" classification system, created by the European Union, for products sold or manufactured in Europe, is the most stringent in the world for furniture , and rates furniture products according to amount of chemicals used in the manufacturing process, the amount of off gassing of VOC, Volatile Organic Compounds or formaldehyde, and other dangerous gasses emitted from the finished product, and the source of base materials used and to what degree are they sustainably produced. The “E-1” is the cleanest, highest rating available in th world, meaning zero, or no off-gassing of any toxic chemicals. There currently are no standards in the United States for furniture. Currently in a positive move for the American consumer, California is beginning to implement a system of monitoring toxic and dangerous off gas emissions from furniture.
In addition, our E-1 Certified, eco-friendly furniture does not use toxic chemicals or glues in the manufacturing process. This is better for the earth and better for you.
ITTO- International Tropical Timber Organization
The ITTO is an international organization and certification process created to insure that the base wood materials used in furniture manufacturing are harvested from forests in a sustainable and renewable manner. The ITTO Sustainable Forest Management Certificate certifies and verifies that production materials are from forests that are well-managed and legally harvested, as defined by their comprehensive list of written regulations and standards, to ensure responsible management for sustainable forests.
Eco-Friendly Bamboo Furniture
The Quality and Beauty of Eco-Friendly Bamboo
Purchasing Eco-Friendly Bamboo Furniture from Haiku Designs contributes to environmental stewardship and the practice of keeping our planet clean and safe from harmful chemicals. Renewable resources ensure that we will be able to continue creating and developing beauty from nature.
Bamboo is an eco-friendly, renewable resource grown in sustainable forests. Bamboo can grow into full maturity in just about 4 years or so.
Warp, Chip & Crack Resistant
Known for its natural beauty and flexibility, bamboo hardwood is less likely to warp, chip or crack than other solid woods.
30% Stronger Than Oak
The bamboo hardwood used in all Haiku Designs furniture is 30% stronger than solid oak.
Premium Quality Materials
We only use solid bamboo wood — No bamboo laminate, MDF board, particle board interior or other low quality materials.
Ultra Low Off-gassing
Our Eco-Friendly bamboo furniture reduces off-gassing and toxic emissions to ultra low levels for your health and for the Earth.
100% Natural Materials
Our furniture is built from 100% Natural Bamboo and will naturally stay consistently durable while also being mold resistant.
Bamboo serves as a strong carbon sequester, releasing 35% more oxygen into the atmosphere than a tree, helping to reduce greenhouse gases that contribute to climate change. Make a difference in not only your health, but also the world by choosing Eco-Friendly Bamboo Furniture from Haiku Designs.
Each bamboo culm used in the production of Haiku Designs Eco-Friendly Bamboo Furniture products is individually selected and hand harvested. See the farmer’s age markers on the bamboo culms. No heavy equipment is brought into the bamboo forests which would damage the integrity of the forest floors. This preserves the eco-system of the native bamboo forest, and leaves the bamboo root system intact, from which new bamboo shoots will emerge and grow the following year.
Our eco-friendly bamboo furniture qualifies for MR6 (Rapidly Renewable Materials), MR7 (FSC Certified Wood Products) and IEQ4.5 (Low Emitting Material-Systems Furniture and Seating) credits!
