Online Store, MO (PressExposure) April 08, 2009 -- Not unlike bamboo flooring, bamboo furniture has a very long life, resists wear and scratches and is very durable. The new line of sustainable bamboo furniture from Yes It's Organic, an online store featuring only organic and eco friendly products, is high quality, fashionable and has extensive, flexible configurations.
Ed Mass, President and Founder of Yes It's Organic, said the store only recently launched this division but already orders are coming in from a wide variety of people. Some are looking for value based gifts for upcoming college graduates moving into their first apartment or home. Others are from eco minded individuals with a concern for the environment.
Versatile pieces like bookcases, end tables and media towers double as office furniture, bedroom furniture or even living room furniture. Straight and corner desks in a variety of sizes feature a range of shelving and extensions to link multiple work spaces or multiple purposes to one space.
Precision manufacturing, coupled with freight-efficient flat-packaging, enables remarkable price value. "I love this furniture," says Mass, "It's so versatile with a wide variety of configuration possibilities. But mostly, I appreciate that it's truly a sustainable product from design to finish. That's an important quality we look for in the products offered through our store."
Green consumers who debate replacing worn out furniture or furniture that lacks the usefulness it once had are delighted by the fact that they can obtain this sustainable choice. Mass said some people moving households long distances find it may be more economical to buy new furniture for a new start in a new location.
Yes It's Organic customers recognize the importance of clean indoor air quality for one's health, sustainable design in furniture for the environment and high quality and durability for sound economics. They want to expound these values in their family members, especially those about to lead the future. These specific furniture pieces provide all of that, and they are fun to assemble.
The ready-to-assemble, sturdy bamboo pieces are carefully cut and designed to lock together without any tools or hardware. Yet, they are proven to be strong and wobble-free.
What exactly does it mean to have a truly sustainable piece of furniture? "First, the bamboo is made from FSC Certified bamboo forests, which means it was harvested sustainably. The furniture pieces feature a beautiful, golden-amber finish but it's made from a non toxic kiln process and is laminated using VOC-free adhesives that are certified to the high standards of the European Union E1 rating," explains Mass, "And what's really cool about this manufacturer is that the kiln process uses the waste material from the conversion of the bamboo into furniture for its heat source!"

Further Information: VOCs are Volatile Organic Compounds that vaporize into the air and are toxic to breathe. E1 refers to a set of regulations for environmentally acceptable performance created by the European Union in Brussels - the most stringent rating system for furniture products in the world. This system rates furniture according to the amount of chemicals used in the manufacturing process, the degree of dangerous off-gassing of formaldehyde and other toxic gasses, and the source of base materials used. E1 is the best rating with zero off-gassing.
