SensoryEdge is proud to announce a new addition to its website – Sproutz® eco-friendly early childhood furniture by Jonti Craft. Alycia Shapiro, co-founder and vice president of SensoryEdge, says: “We are so happy to find kids’ high-quality furniture that is made from 100% recycled wood fiber and formaldehyde-free resin. We know there are a lot of consumers who prefer an eco-friendly alternative for their environments. Jonti Craft’s Sproutz line meets that need.”
When looking at Sproutz furniture consumers will see that the recycled wood fiber is transformed into sturdy and handsome sustainably designed fiberboard. It is bonded using formaldehyde-free resin which meets the most stringent formaldehyde emission standards in the world (CHPS 01350). Studies show that using ‘green’ materials in schools and waiting areas improves the indoor air quality and decreases illness, which in turn boosts learning and performance. Additionally, the Sproutz line integrates Jonti Craft’s state-of-the-art KYDZSafe® features, including rounded edges and dowel pin construction, and is produced using their environmentally friendly KYDZTuff® finish for supreme durability.
Sproutz furniture pieces include book displays, storage units, cubbies, and art carts. Each item comes with a choice of attractive trim colors, including red, navy blue, rich caramel and sophisticated black. When asked about the additional benefits of the Sproutz line Shapiro said, “We have always liked Jonti Craft’s early learning furniture because it is sturdy, affordable, and made here in America. The addition of this eco-friendly line takes classroom and waiting area furniture to a whole new level. Today parents have enough to worry about. They do not want to have to think about the toys and furniture in their children’s school being full of harmful chemicals. Sproutz furniture gives parents one less thing to fear so redecorating your classroom with this eco-friendly furniture is money well spent. Plus it is affordable so it is a smart choice for schools too.”
