Organic hardwoods are naturally aged and are obtained through delicate natural means. Because of this, most of the wooden products retain their beautiful natural color and state. This gives organic furniture their natural beauty and attractiveness. Furthermore, skilled craftsmen most often bring out the natural beauty of these wood making them even more priceless. Talk about getting beautiful furniture without sacrificing quality! Most of the businesses that manufacture organic bedroom furniture are small factories that are almost ready to close because of the recession. And so we have to move to convince them not to close by supporting their solid wood furniture and other goods. With the rising popularity of environmental ideologies, organic furniture are a very booming business. Because of this, fraud and false advertising scams are inevitable. You will encounter shops out there that would claim that their goods are organic, but in truth they are not. They may look organic, but eventually, the signs of wear and tear appear early on. This could waste your money or worse, endanger your and your familys welfare. How does one protect himself from all these fake goods?
Many are unaware that since most furniture are made from synthetic materials, they have the greatest potential to actually harm both the body and the environment. Plastics, metals and some hardwood pieces often contain chemicals that help preserve and keep the integrity of the furniture. Not doing this would jeopardize the business, and so furniture manufacturers incorporate preservative materials to their products to increase their longevity in warehouses and stores. For example, some solid wood furniture is imbibed with pesticide and/or fungicides that kill insects or molds that may invade and destroy the furniture. Some have preservatives like Formaldehyde as for plastic or steel fixtures, especially those with color, their paints may contain lead. All these pose a significant health risk to the users. Some disintegrate and turn into vapour, but this ultimately causes harm too. Inhaling the fumes from chemicals in the furniture will cause disorders and disease. Whats more is that these chemicals do not break down easily. They stay with your solid wood furniture until the day you dispose of them. When you dispose of them, the environment then takes the damages. The chemicals harm and pollute the environment.
