7. Buy Green

There is so much information available on the internet, it is easy to find out about companies who have  adopted green manufacturing processes.  For example, Brentwood Classics (www.brentwoodclassics.com) north of Toronto uses “bio-plush foam” made from natural soy beans, in their sofas.  They are a member of the Sustainable Furnishings Council (www.sustainablefurnishings.org) which lists green furniture manufacturers.
