More and more of us are asking about the durability of products before buying. It has also become a real reflex for everything related to household appliances, electronics or textiles! Furniture is not to be outdone and brands have fully grasped the challenges of a circular economy. Messages concerning repairability are multiplying, public testimonies of a change of mindset: today, repairing becomes necessary. At LAFUMA MOBILIER, we have a clear vision regarding the environmental impact of our products: disassembly is integrated from the creation and design phase. All our seats, tables and deckchairs are designed to be easily removable and repairable. Also, a wide choice of wear parts and spare parts allows you to easily repair your products and extend their lifespan. So this is a selection criterion that can largely tip the scales for creating an eco-responsible and sustainable balcony.
However, other criteria must be taken into account to choose the furniture and accessories that will embellish your balcony:
Materials: For a piece of furniture to be qualified as eco-responsible, it must be made with environmentally friendly, natural or recycled materials. It is therefore essential to find out about the type of material used, but also where it comes from. LAFUMA MOBILIER has it all, by offering both products made from metal and recycled textiles as well as materials made locally. What else!
Eco-design: This encompasses all the measures put in place to integrate environmental protection into product design. Its objective is to reduce their environmental impact throughout their life cycle: extraction of raw materials, production, distribution, use and end of life.
Labels: Several labels guarantee the longevity, robustness and quality of the products. You can rely on the Longtime© label, which we will discuss shortly, but also on the QualiRépar label or the European Ecolabel for the purchase of eco-responsible and sustainable balcony furniture.
Let's quickly return to the Longtime© label. The latter attests to a company's commitment to extending the life of its products and to favoring repair rather than replacement. We are also very proud to be one of the French brands with the Longtime© label, and we continue to offer solutions every day to improve the repairability of our products.
You now have all the cards in hand to start decorating your outdoor space. We hope that our tips for an eco-responsible and sustainable balcony have been useful to you, and we wish you a very nice summer !
