Why Eco Matters MATTER
Climate change is real and it’s happening now. It’s important for us, our children, and those generations going forward, to take care of where we live. Boston Interiors' focus is to make beautiful living spaces with our clients every day. In doing so, we strive to help create a more sustainable world for all- from how our manufacturers craft our products, to how we operate as a company.
April celebrates Earth Day and serves as a reminder to double check your efforts at recycling, reusing, and restoring. Within in our own company, we recycle over 350 tons of plastic and cardboard from packaging each year. Our store teams recycle bottles in the lunchroom and discarded paper is shredded then recycled.
We are dedicated to making sure that our vendors are doing their part, either in production or shipping best practices, for eco-friendly efforts and reduction of our carbon footprint.
From our manufacturers to your homes, here are just some of our eco-conscious materials and products that are made to last.
Olefin is the only UPCYCLED fiber available for making upholstery. Olefin is a byproduct of refining petroleum. For many years, it was discarded or simply burned off. OLEFIN is dyed without the use of water and requires almost NO LAND and WATER for its production. Because it is produced from what was formerly waste, Olefin has by far, the smallest carbon footprint of any upholstery fiber. (Source: Higg Index)
Crypton technology is third-party GREENGUARD Gold Certified, helping to create healthier, more sustainable indoor environments. Crypton is a proud member of the Sustainable Furnishings Council. The company maintains an ongoing recycling program of manufacturing remnants.
Most of our vendors are utilizing product that is certified through the (SFI) Sustainable Forest Initiative®. They are an independent, non-profit organization that collaborates with a diverse network to provide solutions to local and global sustainability challenges. SFI works with the forest sector, brand owners, conservation groups, resource professionals, landowners, educators, local communities, Indigenous Peoples, governments, and universities.
SEAQUAL INITIATIVE is a community of individuals, organizations and companies working together to help clean our oceans, raise awareness of the issue of marine litter and highlight those helping to fight it. Each queen mattress helps recover the equivalent of 50 water bottles from our oceans.
CertiPUR-US certified foams are:
- -Made without ozone depleting substances
- -Made without PBDEs, TDCPP or TCEP (”Tris”) flame retardants
- -Made without mercury, lead, and other heavy metals

Eco matters MATTER to our families and our future. Boston Interiors continues to hold our team and family of manufacturers to high standards. It may be Earth Day in April, but everyday holds us accountable to do our part.
