Born from other cradle-to-cradle concepts, Ever-Cycle is designed for those who may want to upgrade, renew or restyle their furniture pieces in the future and not worry about what to do with their existing furniture.
How it works
In the event that our customers want to change their existing interior, upgrade to a new look or the piece has reached its usable life, Fernwalla will offer to buy back or give credit towards new peices. Simply call or email us and we’ll get the history of your peice(s) and their condition and then make our offer to you.
We will arrange shipping if necessary, you just make it ready for us.
To qualify, the piece(s) must be at least 3 years old and originally purchased new from Fernwalla.
We will take into account the age, condition and usage when we make our offer to you. The offer is not binding or a legal contract.

I’ve been trying to find some good news to post, but alas have not run across anything worthy.Here is a good article on the major causes of destruction of tropical forests in Asia. excerpt: according to the UN’s Economics and Social Commission for Asia and Pacific (ESCAP), “Logging is undoubtedly the primary cause of degradation and indirectly of deforestation too (Sponsel et al., 1996).” Logging for export is a major factor of deforestation in Southeast Asia and it has been playing a significant role in Southeast Asian nations economic development.

It seems as though there are other countries whose politics and business goals seem to be at loggerheads with one another. In the downhill run to catch up with the runaway train of traditional capitalism, our human-centered political rickshaws have got to stop stumbling. Here’s a very thorough treatise on some of the issues that polarize. http://www.redpepper.org.uk/article1008.html
