Greenguard Certified Products
In the furniture world, a Greenguard Certification is a simple name for a complex, prestigious, and coveted award that assures buyers a product was safely and environmentally produced. To achieve a Greenguard Certification for furniture, items must meet some of the world's most rigorous standards for sustainable manufacture, including ones for low emissions of VOCs (volatile organic compounds) into the air. Because of this commitment to VOCs, a Greenguard Certification not only proves to buyers that products are sustainably produced, but it also lets them know a products is healthy for them, especially since bad Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) can have serious health concerns. Greenguard has two types of certification, regular and "Gold." More than 400 green building codes, policies, ratings, and guidelines are needed for certification, so customers know they are getting only the best for their money.
