A member of the Sustainable Furnishings Council (SFC) since 2007, Vanguard’s panel cores are sourced from facilities certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). All fabric and wood waste is sent via partners to be recycled or re-manufactured for other uses. Wood scraps are recycled by local manufacturers, and saw dust is converted into a saleable recycled material. Cushion options include a mix of duck feathers and down. The company’s corporate goal is to recycle 100% of all post-manufacturing waste. Each year, nearly 24,000 pounds of plastic from containers and packaging is recycled, along with over 180,000 pounds of fabric.
