The Think™ Chair from Steelcase is a smart, simple and environmentally sustainable seating product with a modern classic design. It’s a chair with a “brain” and a “conscience.” Steelcase worked with McDonough Braungart Design Chemistry to assess and choose the most environmentally responsible materials in developing the Think chair. It is comprised of 99 percent recyclable content and is made of up to 41 percent recycled material. The chair is also GREENGUARD-certified and can help contribute to LEED points.

Recycled yarn (a minimum 40 percent recycled yarn content) and hemp create Zip Stitch, Bentley Prince Street’s version of a plush, “new wool-type” aesthetic and texture available in broadloom or carpet tile.  Zip Stitch carries opulence in a stripe that can be bold or subtle, and presents 12 colorways. With a varying width stripe and intense dimension, Zip Stitch showcases a plush texture that is natural and wool-like. A fun, “zipper” detail sparks visual interest.

At EnviroGLAS®, the company’s mission is to not only exceed sustainability goals, but to also have an eye toward cost-efficiency and maintenance while having high aesthetic standards. Its new revolutionary terrazzo application, EnviroMODE™, is made from pre-consumer recycled Kohler® toilets, tubs and sinks. EnviroMODE brings the ancient craft of terrazzo into the 21st century by combining a choice of epoxy resin or cementitious binder with crushed, recycled porcelain chips. This technique may be used in flooring or countertop applications and achieves a harder surface than traditional marble terrazzo.
