We are committed to being green. From our business practices to the design and production of our furniture, we strive to do nothing to hurt the planet. Whether it’s using certified OEKO-TEX® environmentally friendly fabrics on our upholstered sofas and chairs or knowing that the wood is sustainably sourced in every piece of furniture that we sell, we make furniture that is healthy for humans and pets.
OFFSETTING OUR CARBON FOOTPRINT
The average carbon footprint in the U.S. is 16 tons per person per year, one of the highest rates in the world — Thailand is 4 tons per person. To have the best chance of avoiding a 2ºC rise in global temperatures, the average global carbon footprint per person needs to drop to under 2 tons by 2050. Lowering individual carbon footprints from 16 tons to 2 doesn’t happen overnight. But by making small changes to our daily actions, we can make a difference. Chanintr and Co is striving to be that difference.
1 TREE FOR 1 PURCHASE
We have partnered with CHANINTR’s Green Initiative to further offset our carbon footprint through their 1 Tree for 1 Purchase initiative. CHANINTR is working with Plant for the Planet, an international non-profit organization. Through Plant for the Planet, CHANINTR has achieved its goal of planting one tree for every item sold. In 2020, the company sold 50,000 items and during the planting season of 2021, planted 50,000 trees in Northern Thailand.
