Why We Do What We Do
We want to turn sustainability into an obtainable choice and not just an aspiration
Our clients are able to choose sustainability when it comes to updating their furniture. By reupholstering existing furniture instead of buying new, we help to protect the environment by keeping waste out of landfills or harmful emissions out of the air by using existing furniture instead of burning it. By preserving your existing furniture, the cycle of ‘fast furniture’, a practice that creates furniture just meant to be discarded can be broken. In 2018, furniture accounted for almost 5% of municipal waste in the US, making it the second largest portion of urban waste and while 19.5% of this waste was combusted for energy recovery, only .03% was recycled; the other 80.1% went straight into a landfill (EPA). Unpainted and unfinished wood furniture can take more than a decade to break down in a landfill. Treated wood not only takes longer, but it can also leach chemicals as it breaks down, causing further damage to the environment.
Most important is that Sit Well is able to give you that option. In this time of fast-changing fads and trends, it can seem impossible to practice sustainability, but we’re here to help.
We believe in a greener planet, and reupholstery and restoration help us to achieve that by helping us eliminate waste created by the over production of furniture
Reupholstery and restoration are environmentally friendly practices and ones that help us in our goal of preserving both tradecraft and our planet.
We provide an eco-friendly and sustainable alternative to buying new
If it sounds simple, that’s because it is. We’re not here to upsell anything or try and be cheaper than the “competition” – in fact, we consider our competition to be Big Box retailers and mass-produced furniture. Our mission is to enable you to choose a sustainable practice, so even if you reupholster somewhere else, we still count that as a win in our book!
We want to reduce the impact the furniture industry has on the environment from the unsustainable overproduction of furniture by enabling our customers to have the choice of restoration instead of being forced to replace
We don’t think it’s controversial to say that overproduction of furniture is bad. Not only does the creation of the furniture produce waste, but since the furniture is not well-designed or well-made, it gets thrown away just a few years later, adding to the overall negative net impact on the environment.
Restore, don’t replace.
What about the cost?
Yes, reupholstery can be expensive, particularly when you’re paying for quality materials and fine craftsmanship, but it’s important to remember that the money will be spent anyway, and would you rather spend the money now on furniture that will last you for years, and help you save the planet, or would you rather re-buy new furniture every few years?
