Calhoun, Ga. -- Rug and home accessories manufacturer Surya announced its membership in the Sustainable Furnishings Council, joining a group of home furnishings industry players to promote sustainable practices across all levels of the chain, from manufacturing to the retailer and end-consumer.
The Sustainable Furnishings Council was formed in 2006 to act as a repository of knowledge on a number of issues concerning sustainability and to provide up-to-date guidelines for best practices.
Surya has been increasing its collection of products made out of natural materials and will be showcasing those items at the upcoming winter markets in Atlanta and Las Vegas.
"As a home accessories manufacturer, we look for ways to work smarter and eliminate waste wherever possible within the supply chain," said Satya Tiwari, president, Surya.
