His furniture and sculptures are made from sustainably harvested urban wood, and are inspired by Eames, Knoll, Bauhaus and Frank Lloyd Wright.
The mission at Planning for Humanity is to offer up-cycled and sustainable wood alternatives to traditional home furnishings and decor. They aim to educate consumers on the benefits of up-cycling and sustainable products, so when given the choice, they will choose these superior products instead of mass-produced, unsustainable products.
At Planning for Humanity, “reduce and reuse” is not just rhetoric: their wood products are made from 100% recycled and/or recovered materials, and all of their new wood products originate from sustainable harvesting methods. The most important factor in bringing a Planning for Humanity piece into your home is that you as the customer are making an investment in a quality piece of furniture that will last for generations. This means that it will not end up as waste in a landfill, like cheaper, “disposable” furniture.
Tyler’s commitment to being eco-friendly is not just a fad. This is an ongoing effort to improve processes with the understanding that change and investment now means a better future for all.
