As a British company operating from London, we unfortunately see the impact of plastic use on a daily basis. We can’t clean up London, nor indeed the world, in one day, but we can certainly do our bit to ensure there’s a bit less plastic being used.
Cloth and paper alternatives may be more expensive to produce and ship, but we feel it’s our ethical responsibility to offer plastic free alternatives to our customers. In addition, it just doesn’t seem right to charge people for doing the right thing. Hence, we’ve made a conscious decision to not change prices for plastic free packaging, and our usual high standards won’t be compromised in any way.
We have started this process already and pledge to remove plastic packaging from our products. Our target to achieve this is by the end of 2020.
Deforestation is something that we’re incredibly concerned about. While this may seem odd coming from a furniture company, we here at The Decor Brand strive to ensure responsible forestry to let trees flourish while providing work for the hundreds of artisans that have practiced woodwork in their families for generations.
In an effort to strike a balance between quality, handcrafted furniture and the trees that we owe our existence to, we have long pledged to only use wood from commercial regenerative plantations. For our solid mango furniture, we use the wood from trees that have finished their commercial life producing mangoes. This means that we are effectively using waste material that would otherwise have to be burnt to make room for new saplings.
All the timber is EUTR compliant with regard to responsible forestry.
This pledge has never been more relevant, and still stands strong.
