While antique and vintage furniture is the greenest way to furnish a home, sometimes you can't find the right piece and want something new. One new type of sustainable furniture on the market is made of mango wood, from the fruit-bearing trees of the same name. Mango trees are fast-growing (they can reach 100 feet in height very quickly) and bear fruit for about 15 years. Once the trees stop producing fruit, they are cut down and replaced with new trees by the farmers who cultivate them.
