As a company that makes furniture for kids, we believe it is our responsibly to make brand decisions that will benefit kids’ comfort on this planet for generations to come.
Our #acorncrew guides our sustainability strategy, and here are a few of the details.
We choose materials that are safe for your children + their environment.
Fabric We use a ultra-microfiber material that is made with partially plant based polyester using non-edible plants.
Leather Our vegetable tanned leather uses natural plant dyes and tannins and protects the planet from toxic waste water that is produced in non-vegetable tanning processes.
Wood Our Baltic Birch frames are constructed of 13 layer plywood that is certified by both the Forest Steward Council (FSC) and California Air Resources Board (CARB), ensuring trees were responsibly grown and harvested and that the bonding is free of toxic chemicals such as formaldehyde.
Our Walnut and Ash hardwood frames are built from responsibly sourced wood from small local mills in upstate New York.
Finishes We use finishes that are made of natural and renewable ingredients — they are solvent free, contain zero VOC’s and are safe for food contact.
Packaging Our packaging is made from 100% recycled material and we hope you’ll give it one more use. If you build, play or create a masterpiece with your box, take a picture and post it, tagged with #almostfullsize #playoutsidethebox.
It’s not enough to use sustainably sourced materials. As a business that procures, fabricates and ships physical goods, we use precious resources and create pollution — and it’s our responsibility to do what we can to offset these actions.
For us, it isn't enough to just reduce our footprint, we aim to be net positive and are taking a more regenerative approach.
We've become Climate Neutral Certified to measure, reduce, and offset the carbon generated by making and delivering our products.
We plant trees. In 2019 we partnered with One Tree Planted to give back to the environment, create a healthier climate, protect biodiversity and help reforestation efforts around the world.
As we grow we will continue to be mindful of our impact and take action to be a socially and environmentally responsible company.
