At The A&M Furniture Company, we pride ourselves on being an environmentally responsible company. We have taken special care to align ourselves closely with other companies and manufacturers that have earned the prestigious Greenguard certification. We have been providing GreenGuard school furniture for schools and church since 2004.
The short Q&A below will answer most of the common questions we hear regarding the Greenguard certification and our efforts to be environmentally responsible.
What does it mean for a company to be Greenguard certified?
Here is the Greenguard Product Emission Standard for Children and Schools: GREENGUARD Children & Schools Certification program’s minimum requirements comply with the State of California’s Department of Health Services Standard Practice (CA Section 01350) for testing chemical emissions from building products used in schools, offices and other sensitive environments. As such, GREENGUARD Children & Schools Certified products can be used as a strategy to earn valuable credits in the CHPS Best Practices Manual for K-12 schools, U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED Green Building Rating System, Green Guide for Healthcare, NAHB Green Building Guidelines, Green Globes, Regreen and numerous other local green building codes.
Why do we take all of the extra steps to ensure environmental responsibility?
By working with manufacturers and companies that are Greenguard School Furniture certified, we are striving to provide a better working environment that is healthy for customers, better for our employees, and best for our environment — a true win all the way around.
To further our environmental responsibility, we also recycle all of the goods and trash debris that is removed from our deliveries and installations.
Our focus on indoor air quality, particularly when it comes to our children and their safety, and environmental responsibility, is just one of our true passions at The A&M Furniture Family. We also pride ourselves on offering our customers the best line of products available, the widest range of selection, the best prices, and unparalleled customer service.
