The wood used to make our products is sourced from a sustainable forest. That means our trees are carefully felled and replaced with seedlings that eventually grow into mature trees. Our products are as carbon neutral as possible so when you buy i5, you know you’re doing your part too.
UL Greenguard Gold Certified
UL Greenguard is an industry-independent, non-profit organization that offers certification programs for products and buildings.
To become certified, a product is required to have low volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions levels. According to the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency), the average American spends 90% of their time indoors, breathing the same air as their products. We want to make sure that air is as clean as possible.
Our products are tested for over 10,000 chemicals and meet the strict criteria to limit your exposure to toxins.
“CARB” stands for California Air Resources Board. It is in place to limit levels of chemicals such as formaldehyde in products that are used indoors to ensure the safe air quality in these spaces.
Formaldehyde is a naturally occurring gas that smells a little like pickles and is a known human carcinogen.
We undergo quarterly inspections and testing on all our composite wood materials to comply with health and safety standards.
We Support Recycling Efforts
Our 52,000 square foot warehouse maximizes space while reducing waste. All items are stored and shipped in minimal packaging to create less for landfills and save more on disposal fees.
BIFMA / ANSI is an industry-wide registry for the commercial furniture industry. It is a voluntary to enter this program, but we felt it was important to protect against accidents and have a positive impact on the workplaces that are furnished with our offerings.
Our products are tested in an ISO 17025 accredited test lab and are subject to random audits to maintain Comfort, Safety, Sustainability & Durability standards.
TSCA Title VI Compliant
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency requires that composite wood products be tested and certified through TSCA Title VI to meet emissions standards by an EPA-recognized certifier.
Our products undergo vigorous testing for lead paint and formaldehyde among other toxic substances.
