I'm a big fan of Bill McDonough's approach as described in his book Cradle to Cradle. Here's a product that is claimed to follow those principles.

Treehugger: Think Office Chair

The Think chair should make us all do just that. Created in collaboration with McDonough Braungart Design Chemistry (the fathers of "Cradle-to-Cradle" design and other smarties, this task seat was designed to make a dent in the mid-priced ergonomic seating market, but also to raise the bar for eco-conscious design. Ergonomically, it's an overachiever, "intuitively" knowing how your spine needs to move. But more importantly, it's manufactured from 41% recycled materials and entirely from materials deemed by MBDC as safe to the environment. At the end if its (presumably long) lifecycle, it's 99% recyclable and can supposedly be disassembled in five minutes. One helluva "sitting machine", as its manufacturer, Steelcase, calls it. Especially when specified in hot pink upholstery. At $620, its cheaper--and more intelligent--than, say, that Eames Aluminum Group chair you've been coveting.

Forget about office chairs, try a bean bag chair. Our bean bag chairs come in a variety of fabrics, and some have removable covers for ease of care. Find a bean bag that is right for you at
