Why urbangreen

Sustainable: safe for your home and friendly to the environment.

Our quality craftsmanship, thoughtful design, and choice of materials make urbangreen furniture timeless. By using sustainable materials and practices, our products benefit consumers, workers and the environment.
We use only:

Verified Renewable Sources: We source our wood from independently verified renewable sources, following responsible production principles established by the Forest Stewardship Council®. 

Formaldehyde-Free Woods: urbangreen products are made from solid woods and select wood veneers over formaldehyde–free plywood cores.

Low VOC Finishes: Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) can be found in many solvents and varnishes used in furniture manufacturing and can irritate lungs and cause allergic reactions. We only use finishes that are ultra-low VOC, exceeding Federal and California standards, thus helping to reduce the amount of air-borne toxins in your home and working environments. 

PBDE-Free Bedding, Upholstery Fabrics and Mattresses: Polybrominated diphenylethers (PDBEs) are chemicals used as fire retardants in upholstery, drapes, and other household fabrics, and are considered to be highly toxic. All of our upholstery fabrics, bedding products, and organic mattresses are free of PDBEs and other toxic fire retardants. 

Affordable: Economically sound practices and prices

All of our products are:
- Locally Sourced: Our wood comes from local Northeastern sources. By staying so close to home, we don’t add to the environmental burden of transportation emissions.
- Locally Made: Our designs are handcrafted in our Brooklyn, NY factory by local craftsmen and sold directly to you.
- Designed to Minimize Waste: At urbangreen, we foster affordability through green planning. We cut only the wood we need, eliminating waste, and source, manufacture, and ship our products ourselves, eliminating additional costs and providing you with exceptional value.
- Fully Assembled: Our furniture comes fully assembled, thus reducing packaging waste and saving you time.
