Mindful Material Usage doesn’t have to decrease value or quality! Join Leggett & Platt International Bedding’s Ben Cuthbert to learn how this practice is not only good for the planet, but good for valuable product innovation. We will explore several foundational elements key to real sustainability that we use as a company in our own product development, such as:
Materials which, themselves, are recyclable
Use of recycled materials versus virgin materials whenever possible
Use of the least amount of material possible to acccomplish a quality product
When mindful material usage begins at the point of product engineering, and focuses on resilient, lighterweight, easier-to-handle products, the ultimate result is reduced environmental impact and improved sustainability.
Come see how Mindful Material Usage benefits our industry as a whole, reducing embodied energy and carbon while maintaining, or even enhancing, comfort!
