The primary concern of people all around the world is now shifting focus to the issue of global warming and the greenhouse effect. People have started to realize the consequences which come with global warming. Thus, the need and the requirement to save our natural resources is of significant importance considering the present global scenario. Therefore, various campaigns have been initiated to protect the natural resources which this planet has to offer.

Wooden furniture crafting is a booking market which involves the manufacture of different furniture articles. The demand of such products has been on the rise in the current market. Authentic wooden furniture is preferred by most of the buyers because of a lot of different benefits which it offers such as durability, look, style, finish, low cost and design. However, the manufacturing of this authentic furniture requires the consumption of a lot of raw material. 

This raw material is none other than wood from the trees. The amount of trees that are cut to make a single furniture article is not environmentally viable. According to an interview with a very popular environmentalist, it is estimated that in making a single wooden table with four legs and a flat top surface, 2.5 trees are brought down. 

There has been a lot of awareness programs that has been initiated about this topic recently and people have started to become more responsible for the consumption and balancing ratio of renewable resources. Trees being a renewable resource, are consumed in very large numbers but the amount of sapling planted to balance this consumption is insignificant.

Considering the consequences of this consumption of trees in huge quantities, some companies have come up with productive strategies to counter this ill effect of over usage caused to the environment. One such company is FurnitureRoots. It is a furniture manufacturing company. But the major difference between FurnitureRoots and other woodware manufacturers is the wood that is used. Unlike most companies, FurnitureRoots manufactures what is called eco-friendly furniture. The wood used in making this furniture is not obtained by cutting any trees. It is made by acquiring wood from rather conventional sources.

Concept of eco-friendly furniture-

The basic concept of eco-friendly furniture is to make good quality furniture without exploiting the resources required in making it. The aim behind this is to reduce the practices like deforestation, etc. The consequences of cutting a lot of trees from a single patch of land can have a catastrophic result. The roots of trees grip the soil beneath the surface of the ground and provide strength to the layers of soil. Of this grip is lost due to deforestation, then the soil will no longer have the strength required for solid ground, and as a result, the soil will loosen causing landslides. 

The sustainable furniture made by these companies reduces the risk of such problems. Since they are practically based on the two words Reuse and Recycle. The sustainable furniture is made by reusing the wood from old furniture, building material, scrap pieces of wood formed as a by-product of production lines.

Ways of obtaining material for sustainable furniture-

There are two ways in which FurnitureRoots obtains the raw material required to make the eco-friendly furniture that they manufacture. The two ways are as follows:

  • Reclaiming wood– The wood that is used in construction work in pillars and framework of buildings is reclaimed once the building becomes old enough to be reconstructed. This wood has high durability and is an industrial grade in terms of quality. 
  • Reusing scrap materials– The materials like metals, fabrics, etc. are often scraped out by different industries and dumped away. But these materials still have utility left. The metals that can be obtained from old bicycles and chassis of old automobiles are used to make modern articles. The fabric on furniture is obtained in a similar way by using scrap fabric material produced by factories.

How does it help the ecosystem?

The furniture made by the company is 100% eco-friendly and helps the ecosystem that we inhabit in many ways. For example, the fibers used in the manufacturing of covers for seats are cotton, jute, and hemp. These are natural fibers and using these in manufacturing reduces the intensity of the carbon footprint that the company leaves on the planet. Fibers like nylon, rexin, etc. are made synthetically by chemicals and plastics. The waste created by these chemical reactions is very harmful if it consumed in any way. Yet the wastes are released in water bodies without treatment, which adversely affects all the people who use the water of the water body for their day to day purposes. 

Another example of the carbon footprint of the company comes from the usage of coloring agents or dyes. The dyes used in eco-friendly furniture is made out of vegetable oil and it is hand-printed on the articles to give it more authenticity. But the dyes used in the industry are not so eco-friendly. The dyes used by mass-producing companies are made of harmful chemicals. These chemicals are so harmful that once they seep into the ground, they can intoxicate the groundwater reserves and make the water unusable.

U.N. Secretary General Antonio Guterres is warning the world has to adapt to unprecedented changes in the world of work to ensure a sustainable future and create a more just society.  Guterres spoke at the International Labor Conference.

In congratulating the International Labor Organization on its centenary anniversary, U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres cites the ILO’s many achievements in establishing labor standards that have improved the safety and quality of work for millions of people.

He says the challenges facing the agency over the next 100 years are likely to be even more daunting.

“As we look ahead, we know new technologies — especially artificial intelligence — will inevitably lead to a massive destruction of jobs and a massive creation of new jobs,” said Guterres. “It is difficult to now foresee all these impacts, but it is clear that the future will require a range of new and different skills.”

To keep abreast of new demands, he says governments will have to make large investments in education that are flexible and based on the learning needs of a lifetime.

Guterres says the well-being of people must be at the center of economic and social policies.  That involves the creation of decent work that is sustainable for the long run.  He notes a sustainable future for the world of work is not possible without addressing the urgent demands of climate change.

“Addressing the climate emergency is indeed the defining issue of our time.  Climate action could create millions of sustainable jobs,” said Guterres. “Green business has proven to be good business.  But climate change is moving faster than we are and we are risking a future with increased instability, inequality and poverty.”

The U.N. chief says new momentum must be injected into the climate change debate.  He says the new momentum is needed to transform political and economic systems to meet the goals set in the Paris Climate Accord to reduce emissions that are harming the survivability of the planet.
