Earth Day 2021 is upon us! Since the first Earth day in 1970, the momentum of this admirable collective power has been astonishing. Here at Office Envy, we are always trying to make smart, environmentally friendly choices whenever possible. In this article, we will highlight some of our eco highlights, featured in our showroom.
“EARTHDAY.ORG’s mission is to diversify, educate and activate the environmental movement worldwide. EARTHDAY.ORG is the world’s largest recruiter to the environmental movement, working with more than 75,000 partners in over 192 countries to drive positive action for our planet. “
From offering free charging for staff electric cars to switching to UK furniture suppliers where possible (thus reducing transport and carbon emissions), we are trying to do our bit to help make our future more sustainable. As you may have seen, our showroom and office space in Deeside (just off the A55, near Chester) has seen extensive remodelling. It has been transformed from a dark sectioned office, into a light and stylish open-plan workspace. Our wonderful Director, Trudy is passionate about smart design and loves selecting products that are sustainable. That’s why she personally selected many pieces with a strong eco stance.
Here are a few of our highlights…
Trudy’s creative vision for the floor became reality, using Carbon neutral carpet tiles from Interface. They are durable, easy to clean and are surprisingly luxurious considering they are made from recycled materials.
The striking but soft zig-zag pattern, in neutral tones and textures, has transformed the space. Plus individual tiles can easily be replaced if a staining disaster should strike- Proving smart choices don’t have to be dull!
The floor for the kitchen was even subtly integrated with matching vinyl tiles!
We also want to highlight the amazing acoustic solutions by Allsfär. You may have read our previous blog post, showcasing the brand in an interactive meeting room project.
The screens are each made from at least 270 up-cycled plastic bottles and are hypoallergenic. We love how bespoke patterns can be cut (in the UK) perfectly with water jets and the possibilities are endless. Trudy picked the iconic Office Envy green from their wide range of colours, for the baffles residing above the desk areas in our Deeside office. Practical in helping to reduce interfering noise yet adding style and a pop of colour. Wood effect batons are also suspended above the airy meeting room table!
And finally, we love how the Hood Seating ergonomic chair range, uses polished aluminium instead of the environmentally un-friendly chrome (notoriously bad for our planet).
Plus the modular design means each part can easily be replaced if damaged, and the product life span and functionality continued. The result, a premium product where form and function are in perfect harmony.
