Sustainable Wood Products

Did you know that wood, when harvested responsibly, is a green and sustainable material? When used in furnishings, wood stores carbon and prevents greenhouse gas emissions. As a green company, we take pride in this.

When manufacturing our sustainable handcrafted wood products, we work hard to reduce wood waste and pay equal attention to limiting our energy usage.

Some of our Sustainable Practices

  • Choose the most sustainable wood species of the highest quality
  • Utilize high-quality composite wood panels that make use of recycled content without any added urea formaldehyde
  • Save trees! We have saved over 600 average-sized trees in the past year through sustainable practices
  • Reduce packaging and fossil fuel-based foam packing by 30%
  • Utilize finishes with very low volatile organic compounds (VOC's)
  • Recycle 100% of our sawdust wood waste and turn it into biofuel
  • Utilize solid wood waste in our own heating system during winter months
  • Employ high-efficiency lighting, transformers and electrical components in our shop and administrative spaces

 

Our bio furnace helps reduce wood waste and energy use

Our standard manufacturing process reduces waste and energy usage. One way we do this is by using a bio furnace to heat our operation in winter months.
