Annually, Americans contribute over 9.6 million tons of furniture waste to landfills. Furniture waste is crowding our landfills and furniture is the number one least-recycled item in a household. At Sabai, we are on a mission to change this.
Meet the first life cycle furniture program in the U.S: The Sabai Standard. The Sabai Standard is designed to bring cozy back to your furniture - whether that means restoring your furniture with our exchangeable parts or selling it back to us for a new life. It all starts with design - we use mechanical fasteners instead of glue to avoid any VOCs and to make sure that our materials can be reused, reupholstered, or recycled.
Then it comes down to you. Yes you. Our higher standards are dependent on our community’s willingness to change the status quo of the furniture industry. We encourage our community to revive their pieces or sell them back to us for resale. We are giving you options because we know one size doesn’t fit all - each sofa has a different journey, so our life cycle options reflect that. Together, we can prevent over 1,160.20 cubic yards of waste - enough to fill about 10 swimming pools. That’s just with our first year of sales!
