TY Fine Furniture supports reforestation through a partnership with One Tree Planted.
TY Fine Furniture is happy to collaborate with One Tree Planted to promote sustainability via the practice of reforestation. We are constantly on the lookout for methods to minimize our environmental impact and contribute back.
What better way to accomplish this than by increasing the world's tree population? And your orders with us enable us to do so.
WHY WE DO IT
TY Fine Furniture is committed to improving the way our furniture is made while also fostering mindfulness in the wood and furniture industry. We believe in providing the finest possible service to our customers now while positioning ourselves for future success. TY Fine Furniture gets its materials sustainably by utilizing naturally fallen trees from sustainably managed forests in our home state of Ohio. Buying lumber from local sources additionally reduces the carbon footprint by up to 95%.
However, not everyone in our business is as conscientious, with the wood industry serving as one of the four primary contributors of global deforestation. As such, TY Fine Furniture is committed to not only doing the right thing when it comes to material sourcing, but also giving back through our reforestation initiative.
HOW IT WORKS
One Tree Planted is a non-profit organization dedicated to restoring forest regions that have been damaged by fire and diverse industries such as palm oil. They accept one-time donations as well as recurring donations. A tree can be planted for as little as $1.
TY Fine Furniture donates money to One Tree Planted for every item sold. Since 2014, One Tree Planted has more than doubled the number of trees planted each year, partnering with organizations in 43 countries across North America, Latin America, Africa, Asia, Europe, and the Pacific.
With every ITEM sold, we automatically plant a tree by donating to One Tree Planted. Every time you checkout in our online store, you’ll see the tree added to your cart at no cost to you!
For those willing to go the extra mile, you can also make a direct donation and have your tree(s) planted (or ones for each member of your family).
FOR THE PURPOSE OF TREE APPRECIATION
While we are all aware that trees are beneficial, here is a little reminder:
Air: Trees clean the air by absorbing harmful pollutants and releasing pure oxygen.
Water: Trees filter water, reduce flooding, and help the Earth's water cycles function properly.
Biodiversity: Forests are home to a diverse array of animals, birds, insects, fungus, mosses, and plants.
Social Impact: Trees support numerous communities by providing jobs and food security.
Health: Trees and nature help to alleviate stress, facilitate healing, and enhance overall wellness.
Climate: Trees absorb carbon dioxide and other pollutants, contributing to air purification and climate regulation.
ADDITIONAL MEANS TY FURNITURE HAS A PASSION FOR THE ENVIRONMENT
We give back in a variety of ways, one of which is by planting trees.
- Natural Finish
To our knowledge, our Furniture Finish is the only one on the market that is made entirely of food-grade components and has no volatile organic compounds (VOC's). We appreciate creating heirloom-quality furniture, even if it requires a little more effort or time, and we certainly do not want to expose ourselves or our clients to cancer-causing chemicals.
We are one of only a handful of furniture manufacturers who take organic seriously. As you might expect, we have a large assortment of organic mattresses and bedding. When we established our first showroom in Columbus, Ohio, we made a point of carrying only companies that aligned with our values. Organic and Eco-Friendly have been a consistent focus for us since day one.
We have been accredited by Green America and the Sustainable Furnishings Council as part of our commitment to create the highest quality Organic and Sustainable furniture using ecologically friendly processes.
TY Fine Furniture is honored to have you join us in promoting job creation, conservation education, and long-term revenue generation for underserved communities. We appreciate your business and appreciate you choosing to shop with us - where your purchase makes a difference.
