With 9 million tons of furniture waste being added to our landfills every year, Phoenix, AZ designer Jon Irons decided to start SITGREEN, a company with a goal to never contribute to that rising statistic. SITGREEN takes fully recyclable materials and turns them into pieces of functional, beautiful furniture. They don’t offer any floral patterned overstuffed armchairs, but what they do provide is a plethora of unique handmade furniture that is made with care from the most unlikely materials. Each piece of furniture sold keeps close to 20 lbs of waste out of landfills, and their goal is to keep 1 million lbs of waste out of the landfill in 2013. Support them on Kickstarter.
