LOS ANGELES–The California Gift Show has joined the Sustainable Furniture Council, a non-profit coalition of furniture industry executives that promotes ecologically sensitive practices among industry manufacturers, retailers and consumers. In addition to profits, the council says it advocates adherence to two other bottom lines: people and planet.
The July 18 to 21 show, to be held at the Los Angeles Convention Center, will host a pavilion at its At Home division, featuring the council’s members.
Specifically, through a series of education and marketing programs, the council seeks to “minimize carbon emissions and waste stream pollutants, and eliminate unrecyclable content and unsustainable materials,” according to a statement.
Angelina Singleton, the show’s manager, said that “more and more companies want to become a part of the solution by producing eco-friendly product and following green business practices.”
