How to Find Ecologically Correct Garden Furniture



Now there’s help for eco-conscious consumers trying to figure out which wood products are from sustainable sources and which aren’t, and ratings for outdoor furniture have been compiled by the National Wildlife Federation right here.

Of course it tells me nothing about my "American made natural white cedar" Adirondack chairs, but I can tell you they’re a bargain at $99 each.


  1. For even a better bargain ( considering the lack of maintenance amoritized over many years ) , modern style and sustainability look at the cool stylish Adirondack chairs by Room and Board.
    – via their site, click on outdoor , then click lounge chairs –

    I saw these beauties displayed at the West Coast Green Eco Expo last weekend and they were a hit !

  2. One of my friends has made great furniture from abandoned shopping carts. Really, very cool. You need cushions with it, of couse.

    Oh, shoot, I can’t find the image–I’ll post it when I do.

  3. Are those azaleas in the picture? Nice to see some after ours all got frozen this past Easter, and those that lived are getting choked out by the drought.
