Here at Far Below Retail St Louis we strive to not only offer our customers the best products at the best prices, but we also bring on Homegrown suppliers as often as we can.
It’s important that we try to shop from US based, homegrown companies; so that we put our money where our jobs are, and we keep those dollars flowing through the US economy. In this day and age where China can beat out almost any manufacturing job cost, it becomes ever more important to support local!
Also, homegrown suppliers means the shipping costs, as well as the energy expenditure from shipping, are both lower… meaning there’s savings for the customer, and a greener earth.
Not only do we try to work with Homegrown companies, but we also prefer to work with companies whose manufacturing practices are analyzed for content, durability, and emissions.
For example, many of our furniture pieces/foams are built with low volatile organic compound, which means indoor air quality is better. Many are made without phthalates, ozone depleters (CFCs), mercury, lead or heavy metals, formaldehyde, methylene chloride, and without PBDEs, TDCPP, or TCEP.
We’re proud to partner with companies that are conscious of their manufacturing practices, and conscientious about safety, air quality, and bright, green future!
