outdoor furniture can be easily had if you know what to look for. The
search might take you a little farther past the local big box retailer,
but there are plenty of companies that are willing to accommodate those
who want to be eco-friendly.
One way to get sustainable outdoor furniture is to pick lawn and patio
furniture that is made from sustainable materials like aluminum that
has been recycled or teak that has been harvested in a responsible manner.
The benefits of having sustainable outdoor furniture are many. For
example, it can look good. Just because the sustainable outdoor furniture
is eco friendly, this does not mean that it must be ugly.
If the sustainable outdoor furniture you buy is made from recycled
materials, you can know that far fewer materials have gone into it because
it does not take as much to produce recycled material.
If you get sustainable outdoor furniture from a forest that has been
well managed, the good news is that these pieces of furniture will last
a long, long time. You pretty much never will need to replace them.
If you buy new wood furniture, look for the Forest Stewardship Council
