Description:

Zody chairs are manufactured as part of Haworth's Climate Positive, Zero Waste and Product Reclamation programs. Consumers have the flexibility to select materials used to produce Zody chairs. Note that these decisions each impact the environment differently. Haworth employs a staff of sustainability leaders who are trained to assist in making these decisions. This review considers a standard Zody chair.
