Every Day is Earth Day

With a dedicated goal to enrich people’s lives and make the world a better place, City Furniture takes special care to seek the greener side in every aspect of the business.

Starting from within, the City Furniture Tamarac warehouse features a state-of-the-art recycling center, where over 95 percent of all packaging materials are recycled. This includes condensing all Styrofoam and sending it to a plant that transform it into a plastic used for outdoor furniture.

City Furniture made another major impact by opening the first-ever furniture store in Florida to receive the Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design certification, also known as LEED. The iconic structure opened in Boca Raton in 2011 using solar lighting, LED lighting, and a water conservation system—with five more showrooms since following suit in Cutler Bay, West Palm Beach, and Pinecrest.

Their green mission also hit the road with yet another industry first, by converting nearly all of their 100-truck fleet to run on compressed natural gas (CNG). Benefiting the environment by producing less air pollution, CNG is also American-made, thus reducing reliance on imported oil.

Naturally, many of the products available at City Furniture have an eco-friendly focus as well. Their own Kevin Charles line uses biodegradable, soy-based cushions, and they sell brands like Bernhardt, who use sustainable wood and natural, renewable, and recyclable materials. Several other collections, like Jaden and Kona, are made entirely from 100 percent reclaimed wood, and it all adds up to one common theme—at City Furniture, every day is an Earth day.
