Many of us are arguing about how or when a certain item or design be considered as eco-friendly. Some consider an item eco-friendly if it strongly comply with the environmental requirement like zero carbon emission upon manufacturing, uses eco-friendly materials, packed in an eco-friendly way and more. To my opinion, it does not really matter if a product complies fully. What matters most to me is at least part of the product has something to share with the environment. With the Alvisilkchair, the designers from Alvi Design use an eco-friendly silk thread to complete the sleek and stylish seat and backrest of the chair. With this feature alone, I can consider the Alvisilkchair an eco-friendly one.
