Making the World a Better Home
At High Fashion Home, we recognize that our climate is changing, and there are major implications for our planet, the economy, and our quality of life. We understand that the future of our planet lies in the hands of small gestures. Our fundamental belief that if we all do our part, we can make a difference.
Our Progress So Far
* Numbers Updated As of March 31, 2013
We are committed to teaming up with the Arbor Day Foundation, to plant one tree for every piece of furniture purchased. When you buy any of our high style furniture items, you will join High Fashion Home and the Arbor Day Foundation in planting trees to help our planet.
The benefits of one tree can make a positive impact for years to come:
- One tree can absorb more than a ton of carbon dioxide
- Over the course of 50 years, a single tree can control $31,500 of soil erosion.
- Trees help maintain clean water supplies.
- One tree produces nearly 260 pounds of oxygen a year.
Energy Conservation and Recycling
At High Fashion Home, we believe the little things add up to big changes. Our building was originally built in 1951. When renovating in 2004, we decided to make High Fashion Home as energy efficient as possible. A new HVAC system was installed to condition our 125,000 sf space, which greatly reduced our building's energy consumption. Our lighting system has more than a thousand HID bulbs to spotlight our products, a 75% savings in energy usuage over halogen bulbs.
We recycle over 90% of all our corragated cardboard boxes, paper, plastics, glass, and ink cartridges. With our floor lamps and chandeliers, we use mostly compact fluorescent light bulbs.
We actively seek out furniture manufacturers that build beautifully crafted furniture in a sustainable manner. Great design and green design can happily co-exist to make a meaningful impact on our homes without being overpriced.
