Student Sustainability

We conscious of the impacts furniture has on the environment, we're here to do our part.

Sustainability & Ethical Choices

At The Flatpack Co, sustainability is at the forefront of our mind. We believe that ethical and sustainable choices should be made at every step of the business, from design to manufacturing to delivery. Every day small choices make a meaningful impact on our homes and our planet. 

We know we’re not perfect. The Flatpack Co. still has a way to go, but we are striving every day to improve our sustainability. Check out what we’ve done so far and our goals at the bottom of this page as we continue to grow. 

Consciously Created Foam

We are passionate about more than just the basics of style, comfortability and longevity. In our industry, the sad truth is that affordable furniture often include harmful materials that are not only bad for the environment but can be detrimental to your health. 

People who own Flatpack Co. pieces can live with ease, knowing we’ve taken steps to keep your living space and sleep sanctuary safe.

It’s a Flatpack Co. non-negotiable that our manufacturers stay clear from harmful chemicals, so you can relax, knowing you’re living easy.

Ethical Wooden Materials

Forest management and protecting wildlife are key concerns for The Flatpack Co. We primarily deal with wooden materials and strive to have all of our wood and card FSC certified. 

This means the wood or card in our products has gone through the most rigorous testing for responsible forestry. 

FSC certification allows us to offer forest and wildlife protection that requires consultation with local Indigenous Peoples. Having open conversations and working with local customs to ensure sustainable sourcing of wood and card is a value we will never compromise on.

Longevity

Furniture is a purchase that should be made with the future in mind, not just a season. Our mission is to create quality pieces that last. 

Each year it is estimated that over 20 million mattresses end up in landfills, and a mattress is just one small component of a beautiful living space. The fast furniture industry has over 12million tonnes of furniture end up in the landfill in the US alone and in the UK thats over 50% of reusable furniture. 

High-quality materials and timeless designs are our passion and we believe the most important factors to begin to reduce unnecessary landfill waste.

Our Goals

100% sustainable packaging by 2025

Packaging is used in every single one of oour products. That is why we have set ourselves the goal of only using 100% sustainable packaging by the end of 2025. This includes replacing any polyster with honey comb packaging, removing plastic bags for things like scres and using reinforced recycled cardboard.

Carbon neautral by 2025

We have set ourselves the exciting goal to become carbon neutral by the end of 2025. To achieve this we must understand the carbon footprint associated with manufacturing our products. Once this is understood we can work with a carbon credit partner to achieve net zero by the end of 2025. We are very excited to align The Flatpack Co. towards a more sustainable and carbon neutral future.
