Fair trade furniture
Fair trade furniture. Always choose wood from managed forests, certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). FSC is an international, non-governmental organisation dedicated to promoting responsible management of the world’s forests. It was founded in 1993 in response to public concern about deforestation and demand for a trustworthy wood-labelling scheme. FSC is supported by NGOs including WWF, Greenpeace and the Woodland Trust.
Beautifully designed fair trade furniture made from sustainable sources and recycled materials. Different and stylish without harming the environment or destroying the rainforests. Always remember to choose wood that has been certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). This will guarantee that the timber used in your furniture comes from a well-managed forest.
