Have you heard of fast furniture? Fast furniture is the same as fast fashion. It's furniture that's been created cheaply, using poor quality materials and is not expected to last. In fact, it's expected to be replaced with the constantly changing design trends.
On the surface, It's easy to see the allure of fast furniture - it's cheaper, it's readily available, and offers perpetually changing designs. However, these conveniences come at a cost. Millions of tons of furniture are sent to landfills each year.
How to Help:
When shopping for furniture try to make mindful purchases. Look for quality and craftsmanship. Heirloom pieces that will remain in your family for years to come.
