They've worked closely with organisations, such as Greenpeace, so that you can rest assured that the timber we use comes from sustainable sources. This item comes from managed forests that have been checked and approved by the Tropical Forest Trust (TFT). In fact, we are the only leading online garden furniture supplier that can guarantee all their hardwood furniture is made from timber sourced from forests working with the Tropical Forest Trust (TFT) on a strictly controlled management programme towards independent certification. By liaising closely with Greenpeace, we've been able to produce guidelines which allow us to offer this unique environmental guarantee on all our hardwood products. As Nathan Argent (Ancient Forest Campaigner at Greenpeace) explained, 'We are pleased that have taken such decisive steps to tackle this issue and removed all controversial sources of timber from their supply chain.'
