Just in time for Earth Month, Varaluz Lighting is branching out in its environmental efforts by donating 1% of all ecommerce retail sales to American Forests (americanforests.org) during the semi-annual Varaluz Event. Renowned for innovative lighting with 70% or more recycled content and 100% original style, this eco-friendly manufacturer fuses sustainable ethics with an eclectic aesthetic, creating rustic- chic to contemporary styles that are built to last. Each Varaluz light is hand-crafted from recycled steel, recycled glass, and sustainable or reclaimed shells and fibers. What makes Varaluz lighting even more extraordinary is that waste has quite literally been designed out of its production processes.
Varaluz founder Ron Henderson is a supporter of American Forests’ mission to restore and protect trees. During the last 20 years, it has planted nearly 40 million trees—and the goal is to plant an additional 25 to 30 million trees in the next five years. By shopping the Varaluz Event between April 1 and 31, you’ll be helping to secure the health and biodiversity of forests, restore ecosystems, educate the public and advocate for sound forest policy. Who knew preservation could be so illuminating?
