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 Gas Emissions Standards Certified by the European Union. One of 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 rating systems designates 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 one of the highest standards in the world today. The "E-1" classification system, created by the European Union for products sold or manufactured in Europe, 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 one of the cleanest ratings available in the world with ultra-low off-gassing of any toxic chemicals. There currently are no standards in the United States for 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.
