Earth means 'ground'
“Everything that we need for our survival and well-being depends either directly or indirectly on our natural environment. Sustainability creates and maintains the conditions under which humans and nature can exist in productive harmony, [conditions] that permit fulfilling the social, economic and other requirements of present and future generations.” – EPA

HERE & NOW
With the growing threat posed by climate change, consumers have become more aware of their carbon footprint and therefore, more conscious of the items they purchase. Our customers can skip the hours of research and trust that at New England Yacht & Patio, we have hand-select the finest and most environmentally responsible products without sacrificing luxury. Our specialty is sustainable luxury and superior design solutions for your outdoor retreat!
SUSTAINABLE PRODUCTS ARE LUXURY PRODUCTS
Sustainability is (1) the ability to be maintained at a certain rate or level (2) avoidance of the depletion of natural resources in order to maintain an ecological balance.
Luxury products are valued for their durability and craftsmanship, with the notion that fewer is better, thus reducing waste, creating less pollution to our planet.
SUSTAINABLITY THROUGH DESIGN
Preservation seeks protection of nature from our use. Each brand we represent (including our own) researches, develops, and utilizes technologies and practices to lessen their impact on the natural environment.
Green manufacturing conserves energy and reduces waste by utilizing renewable resources and recycled raw materials. High quality materials last longer, and therefore, reduce the amount of waste being dumped in our landfills.
We look for “green manufacturers,” that meet or surpass the standards outlined by: LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification, SBD (Sustainable by Design), Zero Waste to Landfill, FSC (Forest Stewardship Council), C2C (Cradle to Cradle), Low VOC, Rediscovered Wood Certification & Rainforest Alliance, Eco3Home, BIFMA, and plenty more.
Love your world.
HOME OF INSPIRATION
Most of us have spent a higher percentage of time at home over the past few years, which has led many of us to wonder just how healthy (or how toxic) the products are that we fill our homes with. Luckily, nothing beats the quality of handcrafted American furnishings. Whenever possible, we endeavor to support both the planet and the local economy by offering high-quality and sustainable American made products that are built to last for generations.
