Orchard Eco Guest Bed Eco-furn is a furniture company who make beds alongside other pieces all with an eco-friendly quality. The company has been in existence for 20 years and make their beds and furniture from sustainable, environmentally friendly, and responsibly managed wood and tree sources.   All the timber used in the manufacture of their beds comes from plantations where replanting takes place every 15 years to replenished the supply and sustain the growth of trees in the community.   If you feel strongly about helping the environment then buying an Eco –furn bed could be a way you can give some support.  The beds look amazing and Eco – Furn expertly manage to combine their eco –friendly outlook without compromising on style or design. Their Harvest Eco LFE has a light oak finish and is contemporary and stylish in design.   It’s also worth mentioning the work Eco-furn do alongside the charity TREE AID. Since its inception in 1987 TREE AID has helped over 450.000 villagers plant 7.5 million trees. TREE AID's mission is simply to alleviate poverty sustainably, while improving the environment.   Their major focus has been on supporting 164 Village Tree Enterprise groups in identifying products with which they can develop viable businesses. Working with the Food and Agricultural Organisation, TREE AID has helped villagers to produce business plans and to learn to build and run a business so they can be self reliant. They work in some of the poorest African countries including Burkina Faso, Mali and Ghana where around 90 percent of the population rely on trees for their basic survival.   Eco-Furn gives 10% of their profit each year to TREE AID, along with other donations made through fund raising events throughout the year. So every time you purchase an Eco–Furn product you are helping maintain these efforts.   We stock quite few ECO-Furn products now, with their guest beds doing tremendously well in a very competitive section of the market. The Meadow Eco Guest Bed and the Orchard Eco Guest Bed are both well made and have a modern design. The Orchard Eco Guest Bed has been growing in popularity with our customers of late as a result not only of its styling and competitive price, but because more people are becoming aware of the product being  linked to the TREE AID charity.   We are more than happy to stock ECO-Furn beds as they are extremely well made beds offering good value for money and are popular with our customers. The fact that they are so eco-friendly and the sales help support such a great charity gives us an added incentive to make sure we maximize the sales of these lovely beds wherever possible.
