Choosing environmentally friendly hospitality furniture suppliers may seem like a daunting task, especially when you’re trying to shop for the best deal. But choosing hospitality furniture suppliers that are conscious about the environment may end up saving you money in the long run.
Advantages of Environmentally Friendly Hospitality Furniture Suppliers
There are the obvious advantages to choosing environmentally friendly hospitality furniture suppliers. These suppliers go out of their way to help protect the world we all live in by using materials that aren’t harmful to the ecosystem. In addition, choosing an environmentally friendly hospitality furniture supplier like Northland Furniture Company could save on overall costs.
Northland ships hospitality furniture in blankets, which has many environmental and economical benefits.
- Packing furniture in blankets cuts down on waste, which is good for the environment
- Blankets can be reused, which also cuts down on packing and shipping materials
- Blankets create a padded layer between pieces of hospitality furniture, which prevents damage during shipment
- Using blankets instead of boxes and other traditional packing supplies cuts costs for both Northland and for our clients
- All furniture is hand wrapped, which provides an additional set of eyes in our quality guarantee
Choosing an environmentally friendly hospitality furniture supplier also has benefits when you get your new furniture in place. Many companies create hospitality furniture using lead-based paints that not only are dangerous to air quality and human health, but also leave a pungent smell. Imagine staying the night in a hotel and smelling turpentine as you hang up your clothes in the closet. By choosing environmentally friendly hospitality furniture suppliers that use water-based paints, you’re helping both the environment and your guests.
When it comes time to furnish or refurnish your hotel or resort, you may be tempted to choose hospitality furniture suppliers from outside the United States in order to save money, but what you think you’re saving will eventually be offset by shipping costs, time necessary to build your order and more. When it comes to being environmentally friendly, choosing hospitality furniture suppliers in the US cuts down on your carbon footprint. Shipping within the US reduces the amount of oil used to ship your freight order from overseas, which is good for the environment. Often the shipping supplies used by overseas companies can’t be recycled, which is more reason to choose environmentally friendly hospitality furniture suppliers.
