Organic Trade Association & The Futon Shop
The Futon Shop is proud to be part of The Organic Trade Association. Our goal is to provide the most comfortable premium green organic futon mattresses to our customers. The National Organic Standards Board Definition of "Organic" The following definition of "organic" was passed by the NOSB at its April 1995 meeting in Orlando, Florida - "Organic agriculture is an ecological production management system that promotes and enhances biodiversity, biological cycles and soil biological activity. It is based on minimal use of off-farm inputs and on management practices that restore, maintain and enhance ecological harmony.

‘Organic’ is a labeling term that denotes products produced under the authority of the Organic Foods Production Act. The principal guidelines for organic production are to use materials and practices that enhance the ecological balance of natural systems and that integrate the parts of the farming system into an ecological whole.

Organic agriculture practices cannot ensure that products are completely free of residues; however, methods are used to minimize pollution from air, soil and water.

Organic food handlers, processors and retailers adhere to standards that maintain the integrity of organic agricultural products. The primary goal of organic agriculture is to optimize the health and productivity of interdependent communities of soil life, plants, animals and people."

"If people really understood the connection of environmental damage to their own lives, they would be much more motivated to preserve and protect the environment."

--Dr. Eric Chivian, director of Harvard’s Center for Health and the Global Environment, in Veterinary World, Spring 1999

Benefit of organic, Organic agriculture protects the health of people and the planet by reducing the overall exposure to toxic chemicals from synthetic pesticides that can end up in the ground, air, water and food supply, and that are associated with health consequences, from asthma to cancer. Because organic agriculture doesn’t use toxic and persistent pesticides, choosing organic products is an easy way to help protect yourself.

Organic growers use biological and cultural practices as their first line of defense against pests. Methods include crop rotation, the selection of resistant varieties, nutrient and water management, the provision of habitat for the natural enemies of pests, and release of beneficial organisms to protect crops from damage. The only pesticides that allowed in organic agricultural must be on an approved use, with restricted use.

* Reporting on its study examining pesticide residues in foods bought around the country, Consumer Reports in January 1998 noted: "Our side-by-side tests of organic, green-labeled, and conventional unlabeled produce found that organic foods had consistently minimal or nonexistent pesticide residue."

Source: "Greener Greens? The Truth about Organic Foods," Consumer Reports, January 1998, page 13. Meanwhile, consumers are exposed to toxic and persistent chemicals due to current practices.

Much is made of the threats to our environment, and rightly so. Many want to help, but few know how to begin. Every successful cause reaches a tipping point, a moment when collective consciousness leads to concerted action and produces results. Whether you are a manufacturer, a retailer or a consumer, there are plenty of things that all of us can do now. The first step is simple. When you are sourcing materials to build with, when you are selecting products to stock, when you are buying things for your home... ask questions:

* What are the products made of? * Where and how were the materials procured? * If made of wood, was it legally harvested? * How are they processed into finished goods? * What is the environmental impact? * What will happen to the product after its served its purpose?

Here are some other things you can start doing today: * Make My Home Greener * Make My Textile Choices Greener

Women's Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) & The Futon Shop
The Futon Shop believes in fostering a diverse environment. We joined the Women's Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) in 2000. Dedicated to enhancing opportunities for women's business enterprises, WBENC works in partnership with women's business organizations located throughout the country to provide a national standard of certification for women-owned businesses. The organization also provides its corporate members and certified women's business enterprises (WBEs) with access to a range of B2B sourcing tools including, an Internet database – WBENCLink – that contains information on certified women's businesses for purchasing managers nationwide. WBENC is a resource for the more than 700 US companies and government agencies that rely on the WBENC certification as an integral part of their supplier diversity programs.

Through its benchmarking surveys and ongoing interaction with certified women's business enterprises, WBENC has become the nation's leading source of information on trends in supplier diversity programs for WBEs at US companies and government agencies. WBENC also promotes best practices in supplier diversity through the annual selection of "America's Top Corporations for Women's Business Enterprises."

WBENC is a diverse coalition whose governance structure is grounded on these three legs: the corporations that hold two-thirds of the seats on the Board of Directors and provide insight into the needs of corporate America; the Leadership Council that represents the women's business organizations that have pledged to use the WBENC standards and submit annual reviews of their procedures and results; and the Women's Enterprise Leadership Forum, representing the certified WBEs from around the country.

WBENC prepares and provides its partner organizations with on-site training and educational materials detailing certification procedures and program management. WBENC's research projects and surveys, primarily of CEOs and corporate procurement decision-makers, help to identify impediments to doing business and suggest "best practices" to maximize WBE opportunities and expand and enhance supplier diversity programs. The "Balanced Scorcard for WBE Program Process Improvement" assists WBENC corporate members in self evaluating their WBE programs.

FUNDING WBENC is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that seeks and accepts donations from corporations, foundations and individuals to support its mission and programs.
