Unit 1 - The Case For Sustainability
This module provides grounding in the environmental issues related to home furnishings, including the factual basis for climate change, indoor air quality, toxic waste, and water conservation. Source documents are public records such as the U.N. IPCC 4th Assessment Report and the U.S. EPA, translated from technical jargon into easily understood concepts with common references all explicitly linked to the furnishings industry.
Unit 2 - Knowing Green Consumers
This module provides insight into the current thinking of consumers based on a national survey among those who have purchased home furnishings recently. Topics include preferred terminology, hot button issues, level of concerns, purchase interest, price sensitivity, and perceived obstacles. Learn why consumers do what they do, and what you need to know to be effective with your marketing and sales efforts.
Unit 3 - Sourcing Green Products
This module provides detailed descriptions of the differences between available options in the components that go into home furnishings, including certified wood, rapid renewables, commercial harvests, recycled/recyclable content, low VOC finishes, bio hybrid cushioning, vegetable-tanned leathers and organic textiles. Learn what to look for, what to avoid, and how each option relates to different environmental concerns.
Unit 4 - Selling Green Solutions
This module answers the questions most commonly asked by customers in simple, compelling ways. What’s the difference between green and sustainable? Who’s interested, and when will they start asking for it? How much are they willing to pay? What does it say about your regular products? Why should you buy now, and can it make a difference? Learn how to initiate, advance and close a green sale among ordinary customers.
