12 things you should know about our beautiful sample box of sustainable materials


To help promote sustainable materials we have created a box of sustainable samples to help raise awareness and promote how beautiful sustainable materials are.

Up until now, Sustainability hasn’t always been part of ‘business as usual’, but that needs to change, so that Sustainability is part of the fabric of the organisation. Without buy-in from the leadership team, it will be a struggle for Sustainability to be given the credibility and prominence it requires across the business. Help support your business case for Sustainability by specifying furniture that has been carefully curated from sustainable sources, we have many collections to help you on this journey of change.
