Environmental & Social Responsibility

Paying It Forward

We believe we're part of something bigger. Room & Board supports local nonprofit organizations in the communities where we live and work, as well as national organizations doing good across the country. We focus our resources on social and environmental causes that impact us all.


Respect for the environment is a guiding principle for us. Sustainability is a thread woven through everything we do, from how we make our furniture to how we operate our business. We are part of the Sustainable Furnishings Council whose mission is to help companies reduce their environmental footprints as they grow, and to help consumers find healthy furnishings.

More about sustainability

We are a founding member of the Sustainable Furnishings Council.

People First

We believe everyone deserves to be treated with dignity and respect and have access to equal opportunities. Supporting equity and stable homes are how we live out this value.

Racial Equity

Room & Board values diversity, equity and inclusion in all areas of our business. We’re taking steps to include even more BIPOC individuals in our workforce, diversify our manufacturing partnerships and publicly support BIPOC equity and justice.

We donate to the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU).

LGBTQ Equity

Love is love. Room & Board provides equal company benefits to our staff members in domestic partnerships, publicly opposes measures that limit the rights of LGBTQ people and supports nonprofits caring for the LGBTQ community.

We are a PRIDE sponsor and public supporter.

Home and Family

Home matters. Everyone should have physical and emotional shelter. Room & Board supports organizations providing stable housing for low-income or homeless youth, families, seniors and individuals with mental illness.

We are a furniture donation partner for housing nonprofits throughout the United States.
