Sea to Sierra is one of the few bespoke furniture collections on the market to focus on both sustainable principles and materials. We support American-made products and are proud to create jobs for local tradesmen. All materials are ethically sourced, from FSC-certified wood to water-based stains and milk paints to natural fabrics and plant-based foam. Our water-based finishes are low VOC with a protective coating to enrich the beauty of the wood, which also meets the strictest of California sustainability restrictions.
Everything that goes into our furniture is just as good for you as it is for the environment.
- Our foam is manufactured in the United States from a mixture of natural plant-based oils and conventional non-toxic polyols. No heavy metal additives and no petroleum-sourced chemicals of any kind are used in our products.
- No dyes or fire-retardant chemicals are added to the foam we receive.
- No formaldehyde, nickel, mercury, parabens, and other hazardous materials.
- Evergreen Foam will only use soy, castor, and other vegetable oils. To process the liquid oil into a foam product, polyols are added; polyol is sugar-based alcohol derived from castor and vegetable oils that burns off in the manufacturing process. In short, even though foam is a manmade product, all components of our foam are naturally derived from plant-based oils.
Buy quality, support local
When you buy quality, sustainable furniture made by skilled local craftsmen using pure, ethically sourced materials, it’s not only an investment in your family’s comfort and health, it’s an investment in the environment, too. “Fast” furniture waste–mass-marketed, inexpensive furniture made with poor quality, chemically-harmful materials like particle board, Scotchgard™, flame retardants, and more–is becoming a worrisome environmental problem, since the mix of materials and chemicals make recycling difficult, so most of it ends up in landfills and takes a toll on our carbon footprint.
