Environmental Statement

At Intellicare we strive to be a good steward of out natural resources. Our efforts to reduce the environmental impact of our manufacturing processes are seen in many areas, most notably in the following.

Wood Components:

Material is supplied by a FSC accredited vendor, meaing that wood is sourced from sustainable forests. Waste is shredded and used for animal bedding in the agricultural sector.

Metal Components:

All metal waste is recycled for re-use. The recyclable steel frames are finished in a lead free powder coat with zero VOC and solvents. Excess powder is reclaimed and re-used.

Foam:

There are no CFC’s, adhesives or formaldehyde used in any of our polyurethane foam products including our renewable resource foam which is based on an agriculturally derived Polyol at 20% concentration. Intellicare primarily uses molded foam, virtually eliminating waste. Molded foam is created using a chemical reaction temperature as opposed to an external heat source. Waste from molded foam is supplied to a local pillow-stuffer, diverting it from a landfill site. Where cut foam is used, waste is sent back to the supplier who then recycles and converts it into carpet underlay.

Upholstery:

Intellicare promotes only upholstery products that are produced from 100% recycled fibre, bio-based fibre or natiral, compostable fibre upholstery.

Glue:

Intellicare only uses water-based adhesives tht conform to environmental regulations.
