It’s that time of year again, and we know lots of you are headed back to school — many moving into dorm rooms and new apartments. For many of you that means trips to IKEA to find cheap furniture, but often cheap furniture comes with a downside: formaldehyde-filled plywood that off-gases in your space and can cause indoor air pollution. Fortunately our favorite cheap-chic retailer Target has come to the rescue with a new line of economical furniture that is cute, eco-friendly and flat-packed for easy transport.
What we love about Target’s Eco Furniture line is that it hits the mark on almost every criteria that a savvy sustainable-style maven on a budget might want: it’s affordable, easy to transport and set up, eco-friendly, and most importantly, adorably cute and curvy. Made with FSC/Rainforest Alliance Certified SmartWood, Target’s eco furniture is 100% formaldehyde-free with 100% nontoxic, water-based glues and stains. The furniture ships flat to conserve packaging and reduce waste; is designed and manufactured in the good old US of A; and requires no hardware to set up. What’s not to love?
