Green FurniturePreservation and stewardship are values that run deep in Vermont. There is immense pride in the quality of the environment and the natural beauty that surrounds Copeland. Here are some of the ways that Copeland's environmental values are reflected in each piece of furniture that they make:
The lumber used comes from the American Northern Forest, much of it within 500 miles of Copeland's factory, consuming less energy in transporting raw material to the factory. An independent research study,* commissioned by the American Hardwood Export Council (AHEC) and conducted by a team of international experts confirms that:
1. U.S. hardwoods derive from legal and well managed forests. Hardwood procured from anywhere in the hardwood states could be considered Low Risk in all five Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) controlled wood risk categories.
2. There exists, a low risk that U.S. hardwoods are produced from controversial sources as defined in the Chain of Custody standard of the Program for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC).
3. The U.S. hardwood-producing region can be considered low risk for illegal and non-sustainable hardwood sourcing as a result of public and private regulatory and non-regulatory programs.
Award WinningCopeland Furniture was awarded Silver Exemplary Membership Status by Sustainable Furnishings Council (SFC), joining only a handful of companies to have been awarded this prestigious distinction for proven performance in meeting a range of specific sustainability measures.
Copeland is Sponsored by the American Home Furnishings Alliance (AHFA), the award program was launched to recognize environmental accomplishments within the home furnishings industry.
Commitment To SustainabilityCopeland uses a post-catalyzed conversion varnish that is GREENGUARD Certified for low chemical emissions as the default finish option on all of our products. GREENGUARD certification is a testing program of UL (Underwriters Laboratory) focusing on the issue of indoor air quality.
With more than 1,000,000 kWh of solar production and 3,500,000 BTUs of bio-mass heat generation capacity, Copeland generate 95% of their own energy, onsite. Based on figures provided by the EPA’s eGRID, their two solar installations offset over 1.5 million pounds of CO2 emissions annually.
While the environmental impact of the Copeland factory and the environmental cost of the furniture built for you is among the lowest, Copeland is not standing still. They continue to work to reduce VOC (volatile organic compounds) emissions. Reduced packaging material purchases with the installation of a box making machine allows them to make only what is needed. Copeland recycles all packaging waste and have reduced their reliance on landfill disposal. They now heat their building completely with wood waste from the manufacturing operation further reducing the consumption of imported oil.

We at Hansen Interiors will always provide you the customer, with the required or suggested maintenance and care information on any product. If you have questions about proper care or maintenance, please get in touch with us.
From Copeland Furniture: Please keep the following recommendations in mind to care for and preserve the finish of your new Copeland Furniture piece. While our furniture has a durable topcoat, the surface may be sensitive to dents and abrasions during the first 30 days in your home. Treat the surface finish gently so your furniture will not dent or chip. Avoid using tape or stickers on your furniture as it could harm the finish. For general care, use a soft cloth to dust the furniture. Use a damp cloth with mild soap to clean up spills or dirt. Dry the surface thoroughly. Please do not use polishes, waxes, or solvents to clean the furniture's surface. That holds for new Copeland Furniture pieces and items you may already have in your home. Please do not place any candles directly on the surface of your furniture. The perfumes and dyes in the candles may penetrate the finish.
Since the beginning, Copeland Furniture has sought to stay loyal to its mission to produce furniture for discerning consumers who have an appreciation for good design, quality, and value.Read More
