How Your Family Can Practice Sustainable Living

Mother Nature is a work of art, providing your family with everything from blissful outdoor escapes to the furniture that is sprinkled around your home. 

 

With a culture so wrapped up in convenience, the life of the modern consumer has never been easier. With countless retailers at your fingertips, 2 day shipping, and more affordable products on the market than ever before, you can have just about anything delivered directly to your door. Each of these things have led to people caring less about the quality, craftsmanship, and sustainability of the products they buy. 

 

Whether you are looking for a new dining room table, a work-from-home desk, or furniture and toys for your children, it is so important to know that the purchases you make for your family are ethical, environmentally-friendly, and non-toxic. 

 

 

Why Your Family Should Make Sustainable Purchases 

 

The environment is sacred, and requires respect and conscious decision making if it is going to continue to support life on Earth. While going solar and driving less are great ways to live more environmentally friendly lives, they are actions that may be more costly or simply not compatible for an entire family -- and that is okay! 

 

By educating your children on these important matters and making sustainable purchases as a family, you can positively impact the environment. 

 

Not sure where to purchase non-toxic, sustainably made furniture and toys for your home and kids? Teamson has you covered.

 

But what exactly makes our products sustainable?

 

Medium-Density Fibreboard 

 

Teamson’s products are made with medium-density fibreboard, or MDF, a sustainable and environmentally friendly recycled wood fiber. The recycled materials used to make MDF are oftentimes wood shavings and other wood fragments that would otherwise be discarded.  

 

Paper Veneer 

 

Many of Teamson’s furniture pieces and toys are made with paper veneer. Paper veneer is made from super thin slices of patterned paper and applied to flat surfaces, including MDR, to create a finish that is as clean and sleek as it is sustainable. 

 

Non-Toxic, Water Based Paints 

 

Our paints are water based, non-toxic, and ethically sourced, so you can rest assured that your family is not being exposed to harmful chemicals in their own home.
