Season’s Greetings and Happy 2015!

Written by
As the year closes, I want to thank everyone who has become part of the EcoSelect furniture family. We have made new friends via Facebook and Twitter, through our social media outreach. We appreciate the loyalty and enthusiasm of our customers, many who end up buying full sets after getting their feet wet. It is rewarding to know that we have contributed to the health of the families who have our eco-friendly, non-toxic furnishings in their homes, enabling them to breathe indoor air that is not contaminated by chemicals. It has been an exciting year for the company and for…

Doing our Part to Keep the Planet Green

Written by
With the climate agreement between China and the United States in the news, it drives home how fighting to keep the planet green happens at both the international level and in the local arena. That’s where we come in! Every day I get calls from folks who have found EcoSelect on the web, or through our social media and blogs. They are often parents who are frightened about the amount of toxins both outside and inside their homes. We just got a photo of a toddler on one of our fabric sofas. Without sounding corny, it’s very rewarding, and confirms…

Halloween: More Than Goblins and Ghosts

Written by
As Halloween approaches, it’s important to remember that there are more scary things than goblins and ghost. Especially when it comes to the health of our families and children. I’m talking about toxins in our furniture. It has been gratifying to see the steps California has taken to update and modernize its fire safety regulations for furniture. However, there is still a fire retardancy regulation that must be met for all upholstered furniture offered for sale in California. The overwhelming size of the California market continues to drive main line manufacturers to design all their products to meet the California…

Being Part of a Community

Written by
Fall is an exciting time, because it represents a gearing up of activities. Here at EcoSelect, we look forward to a new season of colors and fabrics—as well as meeting customers who have connected with us over the summer via social media. For those of you who have followed this blog, you are familiar with our ongoing support to the changes approved that made the California flammability requirements lose their toxic prerequisites. The American Chemistry Council, along with one of the supply companies of flame retardant chemicals used by the furniture industry to meet the old standards, sued to push…
As the cooler weather approaches, we will all be heading back inside to enjoy our homes. I thought it appropriate to bring our clientele up to date on the changes in the California flame-retardants regulations. January 2014 began the transition year for manufacturers to migrate to the new standards. No longer are furniture manufacturers required to have toxic flame retardant chemicals added to their foam to prevent fires as part of their construction. There is still pushback in the form of a lawsuit against California by the flame retardant chemical manufacturers. It is quiet now, but still unresolved. A movement…

Thoughts on American Sustainability

Written by
Sitting and looking out at the fireworks this past July 4th led me to think about many things. Beyond watching the dazzling display, I found myself contemplating my role as the owner of an American business. There are an inordinate number of choices to be made in a commercial enterprise. I believe that one of the factors that doesn’t get enough consideration or awareness is the important issue of local sourcing and manufacturing. One of the top considerations we had in structuring our furniture company was the choice to have as much as possible of our product be American made.…
On June 19, I had the pleasure of being interviewed by John Shegerian, the host of GreenisGoodRadio about our mission and goals at EcoSelect Furniture. We talked about my motivation for starting the business, which was “to create a sustainable, environmentally engaged product for consumers who were concerned about the toxicity of contemporary furniture.” Since we have joined the social media space, EcoSelect has expanded its reach via Twitter and Facebook. We have connected with our natural demographic—the informed and concerned buyer who wants furniture that does not emit toxins, thereby threatening the health of their families. Shegerian asked how…
The Green Festival is a series of events around the country—starting in New York City in the spring followed by Washington D.C., Chicago, Los Angeles and ending up in San Francisco in mid-November. As a company, EcoSelect has been working on moving out the “furniture silo” into the larger green space—where our products have a natural affinity with those who are looking to lead a safer and more sustainable life style. As a first-time exhibitor at an event of this kind, our Washington foray (May 31-June 1) was quite an experience. Sponsors ranged the gamut from D.C.’s Fox 5 affiliate…
