Sustainability & Sourcing

We actively contribute to sustainable forestry practices by purchasing from reputable suppliers who utilize environmentally acceptable logging practices and meet recognized forest management standards. Virtually all of our suppliers use plantation sourced logs, or logs from selectively logged native forests. We endeavor to ensure that all of our products originate from legal, sustainable and well-managed forests. Environmental and local community issues are important to us and we’ll continue to work with like minded overseas partners.
