Fast Disposable Furniture and Home Goods are created
using particle board (wood chips and toxic adhesives), petrochemical foams and plastics.

Bioaccumulative chemicals such as PFOAS, Phthalates, DDT, Dioxins, PCB's
never go away, they are on Earth forever.

RCRA (Resource Conservation and Recovery Act) is a federal law that regulates facilities who generate, transport, treat, store, or dispose of hazardous waste in the furniture industry because it's considered toxic, hazardous and dangerous. 
Is this not the same stuff that's sitting in your home?

The California Department of Toxic Substances Control identified carpet and synthetic rugs as the largest potential source of significant and widespread PFAS (Pre-and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances) exposure, especially for children.

Microfiber is one of the most toxic fabrics you can have in your home.  It's made from polyester and other synthetic materials that release chemicals such as phthalates and formaldehyde into the air. It sheds and releases fibers that you breathe, swallow and expose your skin to everyday.
It's polluting our bodies, homes, waterways, oceans and soil in a profound way.
