is in our DNA
The Solid Wood Flooring Company cares considerably about sustainability. That’s why we’ve made it a policy to only source from well managed legal sustainable forests and be responsible not only to the environment but also our clients, staff and contractors. We unreservedly condemn illegal logging or sourcing material from deforested regions. Therefore, we never harvest materials from rainforests and will not manufacture some exotic wood species, as sadly so much timber from these areas comes from questionable sources. With modern oiled finishes, we can create a vast choice of colour tones on Oak flooring; so it seems so wasteful that people are still selling flooring that comes from our ever reducing rainforests.
We only manufacture our own wooden flooring and can therefore control the sources of our raw material unlike a large number of our competitors who buy from traders.
We are FSC®️ certified and PEFC™️ certified, with full chain of custody. This means that all our certified flooring can be traced to the responsibly managed forest where it was harvested. This is just one of the ways we ensure all our products are sustainably sourced.
The Solid Wood Flooring Company
in partnership with GoneWest
We are proud to be part of the “Gone West” mission of planting long term forest in England. Please be assured our prices will not increase because of this.Our commitment is to plant 4,000 (four thousand) new Oak trees every year, and if we use approximately 1,000 Oak trees every year for our Oak Wood Flooring it means we are planting 3 new trees for every mature tree we cut down.
Once an Oak tree reaches full maturity it takes less carbon from the atmosphere so we need to plant new forests and regenerate our old ones. Many lessons have been taught to us throughout the trying year of 2020, and The Solid Wood Flooring Team are even more dedicated than before, to continue our commitment of sustaining our planet home, whilst creating stunning interior spaces for our likeminded clients.
With the lowest Forest percentage of land in Europe it is crucial that we act now to reforest. The UK has one of the worst forest coverage in Europe with only 11.76% of our land as forests. Only Ireland and the Netherlands are behind us and we’re more determined than ever to play our part and make a difference.
We are very conscious of our environment and will only supply fully sustainable wood flooring. We are FSC® certified and PEFC™ certified.
