Staying local allows us to invest our energy and resources in quality not quantity. Permanence not disposability. Beauty, uniqueness, & flexibility, not ubiquity & conformity.
Importing products tens of thousands of miles is inefficient, unproductive and wasteful. Each dollar spent on importing costs is a dollar invested in foreign economies and environmental degradation.
Nearly 100% of the money spent on Unplugged Furniture is reinvested back in the U.S.
Foreign made furniture must be built and shipped in massive quantities as quickly and cheaply as possible to overcome the huge inefficiencies created by shipping furniture tens of thousand of miles to the U.S. This leads to products of dubious quality not specifically tailored to your needs.
We’ve never had to jump on the green train, because we’ve always been on it. The wood we use is renewably harvested from Amish pasture & hunting land. We produce close to zero packaging waste because all of our furniture is shipped blanket wrapped rather than using cardboard cartons. Even the sawdust created during the building process is used for livestock bedding.
The fact that all our custom made furniture is built right here, in the US, means that we are saving a lot of oil and gas that would otherwise have been used in shipping products overseas.
