SAFEGUARDING OUR NATURAL ENVIRONMENT
EcoBalanza’s Seattle home is a springboard to expanses of nature in wild form, from pristine rain forests to glaciated mountain ranges and an orca-plied maritime ecosystem teeming with returning salmon. Our environmental sensitivity flows from our relationship to this setting and is applied as a natural extension of our focus on building the healthiest possible product for your family. That is why we carefully select our suppliers and use processes that ensure furniture is produced in the most environmentally friendly manner possible.
We do our part in tackling pollution, climate change and the depletion of natural resources. It makes business sense to reduce our risk by securing sustainable sources of supply for raw materials, to cut costs through reducing packaging materials and meeting higher manufacturing efficiency. For you, we make a product made with highest environmental standards. Together, as customer and supplier we take steps to a better future.
