As a sustainably-minded company, we’re constantly looking for new ways to care for the environment and minimise our own global footprint. It’s the small, consistent changes that make the biggest difference, and that’s why we’re committed to mitigating our own impact, day by day.
Below are just some of the ways we’re striving to be green.
The hallmark of sustainable logging is balancing the needs of the environment, wildlife and communities, with the unavoidable demand for wood. We make sure all the wood we use is 100% sustainably logged, and we always aim to use native veneers to reduce the carbon footprint.
FSC certified plywood and veneers
We make sure all the wood we used is approved by the Forestry Stewardship Council® (FSC®) who promote responsible management of the world’s forests through setting standards on forest products, as well as certifying and labelling them as eco-friendly.
Low formaldehyde MDF
We use MDF panels with low formaldehyde emissions to minimise the toxins that are present in your home and in the air.
Water based paints and lacquers
We only use water-based paints and lacquers which, because of their lower VOCs compared to solvent-based products, have a significantly lower environmental impact, and are much less harmful to breathe in.
Recycle or re-use all our offcuts
As an environmentally precious resource (link to blog post), it’s important to us that we don’t waste wood. That’s why we reuse or recycle all our offcuts and even our sawdust.
We currently throw out less than half a domestic-sized bin of general waste every fortnight - So little that we may have to change our collection date to monthly!
