Earth Day encourages appreciation and awareness for the environment and allows people to reflect on how to make positive changes for the planet. As families become more conscious of how they spend their money, choosing to invest in long-lasting products that offer environmental benefits is more important than ever. EcoComfort by La-Z-Boy® offers a way to invest in earth-focused furniture without giving up comfort and quality.
"Today's consumers are investing very carefully and looking for furniture with the most long-term benefits and the best overall value," says Penny Eudy, product manager for La-Z-Boy. "The EcoComfort by La-Z-Boy selection offers pieces that are eco-conscious, easy to incorporate into the home and suitable for any décor, all backed by an all-American brand that people can trust."

"Reducing our environmental footprint means more to La-Z-Boy than just producing earth-friendly furniture," says Doug Collier, chief marketing officer for La-Z-Boy. "We are very focused on managing our environmental impact as a company. Though we are still relatively early in our sustainability journey, we have already made strong progress, from transitioning to eco-friendly light bulbs, paint and flooring in our stores to significantly reducing our energy and water usage in our factories."
