Why Using Reclaimed Materials is Good For The Environment

By choosing the reclaimed materials in our rustic homewares we do more than add a touch of style and character to your home. Using reclaimed wood has fantastic benefits for the environment too.

It is not hard to see the design benefits associated with using reclaimed wood in your design scheme – whether that be for your home office or other space – but what about the benefits to the environment?

We look at some of the significant advantages to using recycled and repurposed materials:

Reclaimed wood is essentially itself a recycled product. We like to reuse, recycle and repurpose wood into functional yet stylish rustic homewares. In doing so we help reduce the amount of waste that ends up in landfill.

Using reclaimed wood naturally reduces the need for freshly cut wood. In doing so, we cut down on deforestation and preserve precious natural habitats for wildlife.

By using reclaimed wood, it means that you are choosing an alternative to other products that may not be as environmentally friendly. This means that potentially damaging production methods are not needed.

In our opinion, reclaimed materials certainly look better. Reclaimed wood is packed with character and by its very nature, no two pieces are ever the same. As a result, there’s knots and nail holes, marks, scratches and scuffs and it is these imperfections that make each piece perfectly imperfect.

This is not something that can be achieved by purchasing products that are mass-produced and are all identical.

Reclaimed wood comes in a variety of colours and styles and we treat our materials in a range of finishes and the beauty of this is that they can be made to match your existing décor or required style. The flexibility of the material ensures we can design and create products that are not only eye-catching and unique but also are much kinder to the environment.

We think it’s a simple choice and one that benefits not only your design but also the world around us.
