With Earth Day just around the corner, it is important to know what we buy is environmentally friendly to the planet.  In the long run folks, it is going to help the next generations to come plus it does help by using methods of recycling and reusing these products, giving them another life! The eco-friendly side of Midcentury modern is one of the amazing traits this futuristic style brings to the table.  Dating back from the 1930s all the way to present time (making the exception of the 1970s through the 1980s), the retro feel of modern furniture has not only made simple shapes and straight lines a huge statement in your interior, but this week we take a look at why it is also very good for the planet as well!

Molded Plastic

The process of creating a molded plastic piece of furniture is interesting.  It all begins with small pallets of thermoplastics.  They are heated up to become a very thick liquid form of it and is used to fill molds for chairs, tables, etc.  The great thing about thermoplastics is they are biodegradable.  And biodegradable products can be decomposed for other uses such recreating another piece of furniture (just an example).  This way, it is recycled and given a brand new life for another lucky person to have a seat on, eat off of, etc.

Plywood 

The thin layers of wood that make up much of the EZmod Furniture line is heated at a very high temperature and then compressed together, making these chairs and coffee tables very eco-friendly furniture.  Instead of cutting entire trees down to create one piece, this method of compressing wood makes these creations a fresh breath of air for us and the environment.
