Ecolutionary Selling: Taking the Confusion out of the Sustainable Furniture Market
By Mary Clare Hunt
Finally, learn how to take the confusion out of the sustainable furniture market and turn GREEN into GR$$N.
If you think youre confused, think about your furniture buying customer. She just read on the web that buying wood is bad. Yet here she is, shopping for furniture and feeling guilty that shes killing off a forest. How are you going to help her feel great about her decision and about your business?
Meanwhile, manufacturers are working overtime to become fully sustainable. Those same sustainable traits (like 100% bamboo) are now selling points, or are they? In the case of bamboo, what if they had to clear cut a forest to grow bamboo? Is it still sustainable? What do you tell your retail customer who in turn has to tell the shopper.
What about your own operations? Consumers are asked to replace their lights, limit AC, cut their showers in half and dedicate themselves to a greener life. Are you doing the same? Would the average customer know it when they come in the store or read an ad?
