Sustainability

The earth is precious, let's look after it

Flat pack furniture and the environment

It may have had a bad reputation and was a sign of our throwaway society, but flatpack furniture today is more environmentally friendly than ever.

Wood is almost exclusively sustainably sourced and most UK sellers have robust systems to ensure their furniture meets strict sustainability. Some furniture components are also made out of recycled wood or are waste products from the manufacturing process so that no wood is wasted.

Being able to pack thousands of pieces of furniture into one lorry means way fewer trips which in turn means less in the way of carbon.

The use of harmful chemicals is now greatly reduced and when the time comes for your furniture to 'move on' it will be easier than ever to recycle it.

As a company we have an extremely small carbon footprint. We only hire in large vans for delivering or moving furniture so we reduce the amount of trips we make by large van. Our fitters do not use branded vehicles and do not need a specific branded vehicle to work with us. In London many of our fitters also use public transport to reduce our carbon footprint. We are also a paperless company in order to assist in our goal to become carbon neutral,
