About this project
Who's Writing About SITGREEN:
Nine million tons of furniture waste is being added to our landfills every year. We’ve created a company that will never contribute to this rising statistic. SITGREEN combines sustainable materials, innovation, and an aesthetic touch- ultimately achieving this goal and reducing our carbon footprint.
Support Our Vision
By supporting SITGREEN you are supporting a world without waste. Our goal is to keep 1,000,000 lbs. of waste out of the landfill in 2013. Funding from Kickstarter will allow us to begin full scale production and remove the limitations of doing everything by hand.
100% Recyclable Furniture
Compression holds SITGREEN furniture together- not glue. Should you ever need discard the furniture, simply disassemble with hand tools and place the pieces into corresponding recycling bins.
Help Us Launch
Production is ready to go, and we need your help.
Today, we do everything by hand; this limits production and raises the price of the furniture. Kickstarter funding will allow us to produce a line of manufactured furniture that can always be offered at a low price. The components of the furniture will be manufactured with the help of local Arizona companies and the products will still be assembled by the SITGREEN team with love by hand. This streamline manufacturing process will allow you to get more SITGREEN products faster, at a higher quality, and for a fraction of the current price.
With your help, this campaign funding will pay for the creation of a Flat Die (cuts the cardboard faster and more efficient) and a CNC Router (cuts the wooden sidings more precisely).
Each piece is hand assembled with care and individually numbered exclusively for the Kickstarter campaign.
We Need Your Help
SITGREEN has been doing everything possible to combat the issue of rising landfills with limited methods of production, but now we need your help to begin full-scale manufacturing to really make a difference.
Fundraising Goal: $12,000
Timeframe: 30 days
Risks and challenges
We are committed to giving you your rewards as soon as possible. SITGREEN has planned for every possible outcome of this campaign, from running budgets, to designing and building prototypes. Two local companies are prepped and ready to initiate production on our green light. All of the i’s are dotted and t’s are crossed on our end. You will always be kept in the loop; in the unlikely chance that there is a manufacturing issue, we will strive to insure that you receive your rewards in a timely manner.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
This is a question we get a lot, and since cardboard is a paper-like material it is a reasonable concern. Since we compress our cardboard together so tightly it actually takes on the rigidity of wood, so you should treat it like any other wood furniture. If it gets wet, simply allow it to dry out and it will be good as new. As long as you don't put it out in the rain or go water skiing with it, your SITGREEN Furniture should have a good long life.
