03 Reduce

Franklin+Emily is implementing a Reduction Action Plan to reduce emissions from within its own operations and supply chain.

  • With a goal of reducing our energy consumption by 10%, we will ensure any new equipment purchases are energy efficient and we will compartmentalize our warehouse, productions and operation spaces to section off HVAC requirement accordingly to reduce heating and cooling in lower use areas.

  • As we work to decrease inbound potential waste by 50%, we will move to eliminate all non-recyclable materials and will up-cycle trim into new products as possible.

Sustainability Story

As parents and founders, we know the health and safety of our customer’s children is their number one priority, which is why we use materials that they can feel confident about having in their homes. We use finishes that are made of natural ingredients that are solvent free, contain zero VOC’s and are safe for food contact. Our baltic birch is certified by the FSC and California Air Resources Board (CARB), ensuring that the bonding is free of toxic chemicals such as formaldehyde, our leather is dyed with natural plant dyes and tannins, eliminating toxic waste water that is produced in non-vegetable tanning processes, and our packaging is made from 100% recycled material. For us another important part of reducing the cycle of waste is creating something that is functional, durable and easy to maintain. It’s important to us that our frames, leathers, and fabrics can be easily cleaned and maintained so they look beautiful for years to come. For us, it wasn’t enough to use sustainably sourced materials. As a business that procures, fabricates and ships physical goods, we use precious resources and create pollution — and it’s our responsibility to do what we can to offset these actions. We partnered with Climate Neutral to measure, reduce, and offset our entire carbon footprint generated by making and delivering our products. As we grow we will continue to be mindful of our impact and take action to be a socially and environmentally responsible company. Thank you for supporting us and for making purchasing decisions that benefit your planet and it’s future generations!
