Why OEKO-TEX® and GREENGUARD Certifications Matter for Your Figgy Play Couch

Hello, Figgy Family! Today, we're diving into something that's at the heart of what makes Figgy special – our commitment to safety and sustainability. You've probably seen us mention OEKO-TEX® and GREENGUARD certifications in our product descriptions, but what do these certifications really mean for you and your family? 

What is OEKO-TEX®?

OEKO-TEX® is an internationally recognized certification that ensures textiles are free from harmful substances. When a product is OEKO-TEX® certified, it means every component – right down to the threads, buttons, and other accessories – has been tested for harmful substances and is harmless for human health.


Why OEKO-TEX® Matters for Figgy:

At Figgy, we understand that our play couches aren't just a part of your home decor; they're a part of your child's developmental journey. Kids love to build, lounge, and play on their Figgys, often coming into close contact with the fabric. That's why we've chosen OEKO-TEX® certified fabrics for our play couches. This certification ensures that our products are free from harmful chemicals and safe for even the most sensitive skin, giving parents peace of mind.

What is GREENGUARD Gold Certification?

GREENGUARD Certification ensures that products meet some of the world's most rigorous and comprehensive standards for low emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) into indoor air. The GREENGUARD Gold standard includes health-based criteria for additional chemicals and also requires lower total VOC emissions levels to ensure that products are acceptable for use in environments like schools and healthcare facilities.

Figgy's Commitment to Indoor Air Quality:

We spend a significant amount of time indoors, and the quality of the air we breathe is crucial, especially for children. By choosing GREENGUARD Gold certified fabrics and CertiPUR-US foam for our play couches, Figgy is committed to contributing positively to indoor air quality. This means our products are designed to emit lower levels of VOCs, reducing your family's exposure to pollutants and creating a healthier indoor environment.

The Figgy Difference:

Our choice to use OEKO-TEX® and GREENGUARD Gold certified fabrics is part of our broader commitment to sustainability and safety. We believe in creating products that are not just fun and functional but also responsibly made. The Figgy play couch is designed to be a safe, durable, and eco-friendly addition to your home, aligning with our values of promoting a healthy environment for children to grow, play, and learn.

When you choose a Figgy play couch, you're not just choosing a piece of furniture. You're choosing a commitment to quality, safety, and sustainability. Our OEKO-TEX® and GREENGUARD Gold certifications are more than just labels; they're our promise to you and your family that every Figgy is crafted with care for your health and the environment. So, go ahead, let your kids dive into their imagination with Figgy – where safety meets fun!
