Our business is not just about saving pallets from going to landfill, but it's also about being eco responsible, which is the core ethos of our business. All our creations are made with this in mind, from the finishes we use, the source of our electricity down to even what we do with the scraps of timber, we even recycle the nails pulled from the timber.
A study commissioned by the EPA in 2012 found that over 140,000 tonnes of pallets went to landfill in the Sydney area alone. With a bit of creativity & by helping the environment, these can be turned into something bespoke, practical, functional, comfortable and desirable which looks great, enhancing any decor.
By reusing timber, the service life is extended reducing the need for a new product and also reduces any greenhouse gas emissions that are created from having to farm and mill new timber, although it uses small amounts of energy in the manufacturing process compared to plastic and metal. In addition to that, the carbon contained within the recycled timber is stored for the life of the wood.
Recycled timber can be reused, or remanufactured, into a large range of useful products or even used as bioenergy, displacing the use of greenhouse intensive fossil fuels.
Reusing and recycling wood packaging, such as pallet timber, can result in reductions in greenhouse gas emissions. For example 670 kg of carbon dioxide (equivalent) is saved for each tonne of wood packaging diverted from landfill.
Eco awareness is important to us all & as users of creations from old pallets, you can not only enjoy something which looks good & adds rustic charm, but can also be proud in the knowledge that your purchase is eco-responsible.
