Episode 4: A Lifestyle of Health and Comfort
Wednesday, June 16 | 7:00 PM CDT – 7:30 PM CDT (8:00 PM EDT – 8:30 PM EDT)
Duration: 30 min
Program Description: This series highlights manufacturers of furniture, textiles, and other materials who are demonstrating circular, regenerative, and sustainable practices. Designers have a major responsibility to make healthy choices, and educate consumers about which materials and products are harmful to the environment. These industry pioneers seek to replace the end-of-life concept with restoration, shift toward renewable energy, eliminate the use of toxic chemicals, and importantly, aim to eliminate waste.
Episode Description: Cisco Home has emerged as a leader in the industry’s shift toward circular practices. By encouraging their vendors to adopt safer practices, develop healthy alternatives to dangerous materials, and obtain certifications, they are creating a ripple effect in the industry. In pursuing their own multiple certifications (including the FSC, SFC, and Fair Trade), they can be proud knowing they are offering more than just beautiful furniture with a lifetime warranty, but a lifestyle of health and comfort as well.
