Synthetic Rattan Furniture: Synthetic materials are usually regarded with suspicion when it comes to environmental sustainability, even when, as with rattan furniture, this is one of the main selling points employed by manufacturers and retailers.
Fitting functional needs. Store-bought furniture can’t always do what you need to be done. Example, you do a lot of desk work and have one particular corner to accommodate desk, computer, supplies, etc. You may be lucky if you find sturdy ready-made pieces that will fit that corner and your work requirements get fulfilled.
Whether or not you will be moving: You might have just moved into a small rental house where you are starting your life from. When the money starts rolling in, do not just run to purchase big sofa sets. Buy just what you need at that moment. Save the money for the eventual move that you will make into the bigger space. This will allow you to lead a comfortable life both in the smaller home and the bigger one that you will eventually move into. You do not want to run to buy furniture now then after you move you find yourself dealing with issues such as the furniture does not blend with your new home or even does not fit in the new home.
In fact, rather than harm the environment, rattan can be considered to benefit it, insofar as it is used as a replacement for wood wicker in many furniture items. This, in turn, helps preserve forests, as it reduces the need to source wood from trees, preventing deforestation and logging. Furthermore, this plant is often grown in floodplains, thereby facilitating the appearance of animal populations in said areas and making use of soil which would, otherwise, go unused. Finally, rattan harvesting and sourcing helps provide jobs for inhabitants of the areas of the world the material is commonly found at, thus helping maintain a sustainable economy.
The good news is, as far as naturally sourced materials are concerned, rattan is one of the safest from an environmental standpoint. While the palm tree the material is derived from is geographically limited in location, rattan itself is easily renewable, and the impact its sourcing has in the environment can be considered negligible.
