All furniture is not created equal. Many leading organizations and designers are seeking to procure/specify products that avoid hazardous and often unnecessary chemicals. This includes toxic flame retardants, persistent stain repellants, formaldehyde, unnecessary antimicrobials and more. Many of these chemicals escape out of furniture and can be widely found in humans and the environment.
Finding furniture that meets regulatory requirements, while also being environmentally preferable, is often not an easy task. Newly developed tools and a detailed case study will be made available to assist course attendees to identify and procure safer furnishings. Purchasing furniture without these unnecessary chemicals is a cost-neutral or even cost-saving option and makes a great sustainability story for your organization.
Canada is considering a furniture flammability standard that could promote the use of flame retardant chemicals. Join us to find out what is currently known about this potential new standard.
