We believe that every company has a duty to be responsible to the environment. Today more than ever. Wood, if it is sourced correctly, is one of the most renewable resources in the world. Other kinds of man made floors are produced in mines or factories requiring huge amounts of energy which thus emit more greenhouse gases. We use wood that is planted for the production of natural rubber as the base for our products. This means the tree is not removed from the forest nor cut down for timber.
It is only felled when it has to be replaced towards the end of its natural productive life. This is a 100% plantation species in Asia as it only occurs in the wild in Brazil. Thus 75% of our products are renewable. For the precious wood that is used for the face, we take every care to ensure that we purchase only legally sourced timber. Therefore, you may walk on your beautiful floor with absolute confidence that you have made the right choice. For you and for the planet.
