Student Life Furniture Manufacturer Ecologic Industries Applies for LEED FSC CoC Certification

Ecologic demonstrates global conservation commitment with Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) Chain-of-Custody (CoC) certification for line of student housing furniture

WAUKEGAN, ILL. (May 11, 2010) — Ecologic, an Illinois-based manufacturer of furniture for student housing developments such as dormitories and residence halls, will apply for Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) Chain-of-Custody (CoC) certification to demonstrate the company’s commitment to Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) standards.

Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) Chain-of-Custody (CoC) certification will verify Ecologic’s systems for tracking and handling materials used in FSC-certified forest products within its operations. CoC certification will also ensure the credibility of Ecologic’s FSC claims for the manufacture of the company’s lines of student housing furniture such as student desks, loft beds, and lounge furnishings. According to the FSC, CoC certification helps buyers identify products that “contribute to global conservation, community well-being and economic stability.”

“Forest Stewardship Council certification will simply validate our long-term commitment to sustainability in manufacturing,” said Daniel S. Goldman, CEO of Ecologic Industries, LLC. “Unfortunately, ‘greenwashing’ is common in furniture manufacturing. It’s not hard to find examples of the deceptive use of marketing ‘spin’ in order to promote a company’s policies or products as ‘environmentally friendly.’ FSC CoC certification will prove that Ecologic’s manufacturing processes are truly sustainable.”

“The ‘Green movement’ came to colleges and universities decades ago, and so did Ecologic’s lines of green dorm furniture,” says Ecologic’s president, Ken Klein. “For over 20 years, Ecologic has been manufacturing Residence Life furnishings using sustainable, environmentally friendly materials such as certified forested oak and other hardwoods, recycled plastic and leather, environmentally friendly glues, stains and finishes, and recyclable steel products.”

“In the United States alone, there are 2632 colleges and universities that provide housing for their students,” Klein continued. “Some of those student housing developments contain hundreds—even thousands—of units. Imagine the environmental impact if all of those residence hall units were to commit to the purchase of certified green student furniture.”
