New in 2018: #GetYourGreenOn focuses on wood sourcing this year by asking entrants to share their best practices for determining if the wood furniture and furnishings they specified were made from responsibly sourced wood.

In addition, entrants will be asked to explain their efforts to reduce the use of hazardous chemicals most commonly found in home furnishings, especially flame-retardant chemicals, fluorinated stain treatments, antimicrobials, vinyl, and VOCs such asformaldehyde, in their projects. These questions align with SFC’s pledge to ASK “What’s It Made Of?,” an initiative that encourages transparency in supply chains and stimulatesinnovation to eliminate hazardous substances in homes.

#GetYourGreenOn winners and finalist will be announced during the fall of 2018.
