APRESI Goes Green With Singapore Green Labelling Scheme (SGLS)
Everyone is into being eco-conscious these days, be it for food, transportation or clothes, hoping to at least make a little difference in achieving a healthier planet. This is especially evident in the various green initiatives that promote environmentally-friendly lifestyle choices. What some people might not know is that many furniture manufacturers are also going green by changing their materials and manufacturing process in order to display a greater push towards eco-friendly furniture. Gone are the days where people held on to the notion that brand new, expensive furniture must be good furniture.
APRESI is proud to be one of the furniture manufacturers that embraces the world of green furniture so as to combat the enormity of the environmental challenges faced in everyday life. Contrary to popular belief, green furniture is practically indistinguishable from normal furniture, except only for the materials used and the way they are made. On top of manufacturing environmentally-friendly furniture, APRESI takes it one step further through obtaining the prestigious Singapore Green Labelling Scheme (SGLS) Certification by the Singapore Green Council in December 2014.
The SGLS, recognised as a member of the International Global Ecolabelling Network (GEN), was introduced with the intention of endorsing eco-friendly consumer products and services. Administered by the Singapore Environment Council (SEC), HongLee's Aluminium Cabinetry Series — APRESI Kitchen, Vanity and Shoe Cabinet has been certified with the Green Label as a seal of endorsement on its environmentally-friendly claims to fight against the abuse of green-washing. Having met the stringent standards in being environmentally-friendly, as certified with the Green Label, consumers who choose products on environmental grounds will certainly have a peace of mind when making a purchase, for they know they will be making a green effort to save Mother Earth as well.
APRESI’s determination in improving its products’ quality can be seen through its continuous efforts to offer new products in the stream of modern development. In addition to being fully recyclable and environmentally-friendly, APRESI aluminium kitchen is completely free of rust, rot and termite damage due to the metal’s durability. With APRESI Green Label furniture, consumers can now contribute to lowering negative environmental impacts.
