Taking Circularity to Scale: The Future of Furniture?
March 24, 10:00 am-11:15 am EST

Even our choices around that comfy sofa and inviting dining table can make a big difference in fighting climate change. Opportunities abound for “A to Z rethinking” of the usage, practices and systems surrounding everyday furniture and home products. As designers, manufacturers, and retailers look to new, more sustainable models, we’ll explore multiple facets of what it means to scale up in the circular economy — including rental, reclaiming, repair, social equity, and full circle systems — to rethink the furniture world.  This panel is sponsored by mebl | Transforming Furniture, in partnership with the Sustainable Furnishings Council.
