Magis is like a family of creative minds from Italy that started making cool furniture in 1976. They collaborate with famous designers to create things that are not just stylish but also made to be for environmentally friendly.

There’s this chair called Bell – it’s made from old stuff, like plastic leftovers, showcasing how Magis cares about reusing materials. And then there’s this comfy sofa and costume, crafted by Stefan Diez from recycled materials that can be used again.

Magis is super special because they team up with big-name designers like Eero Arnio and Jasper Morrison, making their furniture even cooler. 

They’re adept at using new and amazing materials, and some of their creations have won prestigious awards like Compasso d’Oro. 

And here’s something interesting – most of their suppliers (the places that provide them with materials) are in Italy. That means when they create their awesome furniture, they don’t have to travel a lot, which is good for the planet.

Emeco has been around since 1944, and guess what? They cared about the planet even back then. 

During World War II, they crafted a famous chair called the Navy chair from old aluminium for the US Navy. It was Emeco’s way of saying, ‘Let’s be smart about resources, even in tough times.’

Now, in today’s world, Emeco is still keeping that promise of being kind to the planet. They’re using cool materials like scrap plastic to make the Broom chair. 

And check out their Utility chairs, designed by Jasper Morrison. These chairs are crafted from solid wood sourced from forests in a place called Appalachia.

Emeco shows us that being good to the planet is not a new thing for them; it’s something they’ve always believed in, and it’s pretty awesome.
