It’s a commonly held belief that there is strength in numbers: Two heads are better than one. All for one, one for all. The more the merrier. And on and on. That’s why University Loft is particularly proud that so many – we’re talking hundreds upon hundreds – of colleges and universities across America and around the world have joined us in our commitment to the environment by “going green” and buying environmentally-friendly furniture for student housing.
Just because it’s easy to be green by choosing University Loft student furnishings doesn’t mean we take the commitment of our partner colleges and universities lightly. After all, we take our own commitment to environmental responsibility very seriously. We created the University Loft Green Plan to serve as our guide for being green day after day. We use solid wood in our university housing furniture: Hevea Brasiliensis (HB) trees, a type of Environmentally Farmed Timber (EFT). We support and actively participate in reforestation. We plant trees locally. And we even recycle our cardboard packaging.
But for all that we do at University Loft Company to be a responsible environmental citizen and Friend of the World, we know that we can’t do it alone. So we salute our college and university customers for standing with us in making a difference not only to the university housing environments of hundreds of thousands of college students, but also to the environment we all share and call planet Earth. We thank you and our environment thanks you!
