US firm Concept Industries has launched the first natural fibre made for office furniture panels, known as Nature Core.
Nature Core could well become a long-term renewable replacement for fibreglass and other synthetic materials that it says have "long been the only options for office furniture".
Nature Core, which comes as a result of two years worth of research and development, is a composite natural fibre and a small amount of synthetic stabiliser.
"It is not only a renewable agricultural fibre, but it is also recyclable," Concept Industries reveals.
With an increasing demand for greener office furniture, office supplies and IT solutions, Concept Industries is looking to deliver in both eco-friendly and cost saving products.
Shawn Eshragh, president of Concept Industries, said: "Our goal is the betterment of mankind and to make an impact on our economy, on our environment, and on the future of our children."
Meanwhile, back in Doncaster, Persimmon Homes South Yorkshire are fitting new homes with £2,000 worth of office furniture, in a bid to attract teleworkers.
With more and more people in the UK opting to work from home, Persimmon is hoping the office furniture will persuade homebuyers to snap up a property in Moor Park in Armthorpe.
At Paperstone we can supply your firm with a wide selection of office furniture.
