Sustainable and Eco-Friendly Fitted Furniture at Custom Creations
21st November 2019
People’s views surrounding environmental impact are changing and we’re all trying to do our bit to keep our planet healthy.
You’ve swapped plastic straws for their metal or paper counterparts, ditched coffee cups and cut down on plastic bags. But have you thought about how sustainable your furniture is? The impact of furniture companies selling low-cost and relying on mass consumption is hard to ignore.
At Custom Creations we make all our fitted furniture with FSC® approved materials. We design, manufacture and install sustainable furniture at our workshop in Dorset. We use robust materials and expert techniques to ensure the longevity of each furniture project we complete.
What is environmentally friendly furniture?
Using sustainably sourced wood creates furniture which has a lower environmental impact. We source the wood for our eco-friendly fitted furniture from suppliers that work with the FSC® (Forest Stewardship Council).
FSC® is an international, non-profit organisation who work in partnership with wood retail companies. They encourage businesses to choose sustainable resources to improve forest management worldwide. They consider factors such as energy usage, waste disposal, transport and more to determine the impact of wood materials.
FSC® approved furniture offers the reassurance that it was made with recycled materials or sourced from well-managed forests.
What is eco-friendly furniture made of?
Timber and wood furniture are considered to be the eco-friendliest furniture materials. This is because they are recyclable, provide low energy consumption and are thermally efficient.
Working with environmentally conscious suppliers
At Custom Creations we take pride in working exclusively with environmentally conscious suppliers. The wood we use in our workshop is sourced from leading suppliers who work with the WWF to tackle illegal and unsustainably sourced wood.
