All of us at Manchester Wood just wanted to take a moment this Friday (April 20th 2012), two days before the celebration of this year’s Earth Day, and the glorious weekend it entails, to write an entry of thanksgiving for such a wonderful place that we call home.
From our eco-friendly sustainable timber harvesting practices, to our local craftsmanship, with the final remains of all our work, the sawdust of its effort, going out to farms surrounding areas of our “mill” for animal bedding. For Manchester Wood, traditional industrial/commercial efforts are transforming into a “green” localized effort that helps nurture and protect this amazing Earth we so gratefully inhabit by minimizing our waste, and limiting any damaging effects.
This is the age of new practice, and for the manufacturing world that means great change. Manchester wood is proud to be American made while also striving to be on the cutting edge of eco-friendly efforts. If fact, we think that these goals bring about the true essence of what defines “American” – stretching the boundaries, developing progressive thoughts, and pioneering a better way of life.
Let’s bring those ideals back this day, and this weekend, as we celebrate Mother Earth, and how good she has been to us.
Manchester Wood designs and produces quality, affordable, eco-friendly solid wood American furniture in the Green Mountains of Vermont and Adirondack foothills of New York.
