HBS Joins Major Buyers Demanding Flame Retardant-Free Furniture

In December, the Center for Environmental Health published a list of companies that are signing onto a commitment to purchase flame retardant-free furniture. Healthy Building Science joined the CEH Purchaser Pledge to purchase furniture without these toxic chemical additives. Other partners include Facebook, Kaiser Permanente, HDR Architecture, Perkins+Will, San Francisco Department of the Environment, and more. Annually, these companies represent more than $520 million of collective purchasing power.

“Businesses who want safer furniture welcome the movement to eliminate flame retardant chemicals by these responsible companies,” said Judy Levin of CEH. “Architecture and design firms, government purchasers, healthcare organizations and other businesses know that buying flame retardant-free furniture is a smart business decision. The mood of the market is clear: it’s time for all furniture companies to end their use of toxic flame retardant chemicals.”
