Read our eco-policy and find out the ways in which we are being eco-friendly! Over the last few years, we have been working hard at becoming a carbon negative company and we take our responsibility to the environment very seriously!
0% Wood Wastage
We’re proud to say that we’ve finally reached our goal of 0% wood waste throughout our entire manufacturing process. We have achieved this goal through substantial investment but also careful planning over a number of years.
The shavings our machining processes create is compressed into high density briquettes directly from our dust extraction unit. We sell this fantastic fuel which is used on wood-burning stoves, fire pits or barbecues.
Offcuts produced during our entire manufacturing process are used to fuel a biomass system that provides hot water and heat for both office and workshop buildings. One of our largest invesments to date but a fantastic contribution to our mission to operate in the most environmentally friendly way possible.
In order for us to be sustainable our suppliers must be too. Our timber is sourced from reliable and reputable sawmills who are FCS or PEFC certified.

Recycling and Packaging
We use cardboard to package most of our products. Any waste cardboard gets shredded for void fill.
Where plastic packaging is necessary, we use foam rolls made form fully recyclable polyethylene which is CFC free.
We are forever striving for more ways to make our company more environmentally friendly and will continue to develop our practises and evolve as an environmentally aware company.
In our latest attempt to become even more eco-friendly we have gone paperless! We have stopped sending out paperwork with orders. You will find a link to everything you need in the dispatch email.
