Best Practice Achievements
2019: We have reduced energy consumption upon opening our storefront. We decreased the number of lighting fixtures in the building and switched to all energy efficient bulbs. We continue to find ways to reduce waste (energy and money) by opting for electronic delivery and receipt of business documents, considering the full life-cycle of our products before ordering, reusing all packing and shipping supplies, etc.
2018: We are consolidating lighting fixtures in our retail shop, and switching to energy-efficient lighting.
2019: We are happy to be included in this year's Wood Furniture Scorecard and thrilled to get a score of 12 points! We have created a Wood Sourcing Policy for our business and posted it on our website for our customers to read; and its our intention to use suppliers - furniture manufacturers or artisan makers and woodworkers - who use reclaimed wood or FSC Certified wood. As a result of participating in the Scorecard Assessment, we will create quantitative wood sourcing goals and publicize the results of our performance for our furniture, decor and artwork.
2018: We will partner with local businesses in the community who are able to reuse the packaging and shipping materials we receive from suppliers.
2019: Through our Sustainable Wood Sourcing Policy, we seek to set a positive example for our peers, to educate the public, and to actively do our part to protect the world’s forests. Green Haven Living is a designated community pick-up location for Farm-To-Table Food Boxes provided by YellowBird Foodshed. Together, we are supporting the sustainable farming community year-round. We host "Wild Saturday", a quarterly event for local wildlife conservation, where a portion of event sales is donated to the Ohio Wildlife Center.
2018: We will utilize our informational / educational resources (SFC + local organizations) to disseminate sustainability-related information in our retail location, social media, our website, and the community events we attend.
