Green Approach

We are all concerned about the Environment

Are you aware of VOC's and off-gassing? - they occur in many imported (off shore) products.

Volatile organic compounds, or VOCs, the most common off-gassed chemical, have been linked to birth defects, endocrine disruption and cancer. Flame retardants and formaldehyde are common VOCs off-gassed by furniture. The problem becomes acute if your home or office is well insulated. These products off-gas for many years.

In most cases you are much safer purchasing a Canadian made product. Canada’s manufacturing rules are much more stringent than most countries, and the product has not had to travel near as far to get to you, so there is a smaller carbon footprint

At TCB we are dedicated to taking a Green Approach 

We at TCB Office Furniture & Supplies promise to source Canadian made product whenever possible. The majority of our product lines are manufactured in Ontario. We even have BIO-FOAM in our Ontario made office chairs. Ask us about it ! 

"Green furniture" is a good way to help maintain healthy indoor air quality. Responsible manufacturers make furniture from material that is harvested from renewable resources, or use recycled materials in order to decrease landfill waste and preserve the planet’s vital forests. This is why many of our manufacturers build office furniture from products produced by a Canadian company called Tafisa. Please check out Tafisa’s environmental program at www.tafisa.com then select environment.

We at TCB actually pick up most of the products we provide, then deliver them directly to you. This way they are only handled 1 time before they get to your door. Easier on the furniture and easier on the environment.

In April 2016, TCB started offering Used Office Furniture. This fits into our green approach. Saving re-useable products from the landfill sounds like a good plan to us. Most of the used products TCB offers are still in Excellent to Like New condition . Used is at a much lower cost than new. Come to our showroom and take a look, or check the Used Office Furniture section of our website! 

 

In the future TCB plans to further develop our Green Approach. Keep an eye on TCB !!
