Recycled furniture is the future and here at urbangreen, we are proud to be serving our customers while also honoring our commitment to protecting the world we live in!

Advantages of Using Recycled Furniture

There are three key advantages you can look forward to when you choose recycled furniture for your home or office. Recycled eco-friendly furniture is:

Good for You

With our commitment to safe and environmentally sound furniture, you can rest assured that our furniture is good for you. We do not add any additional toxins like formaldehyde or PBA to our glues, stains, or paints. Every piece of furniture by urbangreen is safe for you, your family, and your pets, which is a commitment we are proud to uphold year after year.

Good for the Environment

We pride ourselves in using locally sourced materials that are also sustainably grown and harvested. We also use recycled materials for some of our plastic and aluminum products as well. Urbangreen Furniture is committed to reducing waste and we want to see the world reduce pollution and waste. We believe everyone can make a difference and we want to lead by setting an example!

Looks Great

Just because something is made from second-hand materials or is not made in the traditional way with traditional materials, does not mean it can’t look amazing. All of the eco-friendly and recycled furniture we sell here at Urban Green is stylish, functional, and elegant. This is all thanks to our skilled craftsman and our commitment to creating functional and beautiful pieces for our customers each and every time.

These benefits can make a huge difference in the look and feel of any room you are decorating and can also enhance the look and feel of your entire home as well! That is what the urbangreen difference is about and we invite you to come experience that difference for yourself.

Environmental Stability in Action

All of the materials that we use to make our furniture products are:

Locally Sourced

The wood that we use in our furniture comes from local Northeastern sources. This is an environmentally friendly choice we have made so as to reduce the amount of fuel that is used to transport raw and processed materials. It is also done in order to reduce the damage done to the environment by hauling timber and lumber through large areas of forests and wildlands.

 Locally Made

Our designs here at urbangreen are handcrafted in our Brooklyn, NY factory and all of the work is done here close to home. We employ local craftsmen and buy from other local sellers and craftsman and then every piece of furniture we made is sold directly to you. We cut out the middle man and the waste to pass along the best furniture to you.

Designed to Minimize Waste

Here at urbangreen, we strongly believe in promoting sustainability as well as affordability and we achieve this through green planning. We cut only the wood we need when we need it. This helps to cut down on raw material waste. We then source, manufacture, and ship our products ourselves, allowing us to control when, where, and how we ship and deliver. 

Fully Assembled

Our furniture comes fully assembled when you order it from us. We have done this for several reasons. One is that we want you to be able to enjoy your new furniture quickly without the hassle and worry of assembly. It is also an environmentally sound choice as it goes a long way in reducing the amount of packaging needed to ship each piece and thus reduces waste and saves you time.
