Sustainability -  why choose  wooden furniture:

  • Wood is a renewable resource
  • Wooden products generally have a much lower environmental impact as opposed to artificial products and metal.
  • When growing, trees absorb and bind CO2
  • Good quality products usually have a long lifetime.
  • CO2 will be stored for decades in high-quality products and the load thereby removed, as long as the tree exists as furniture.

The production of our garden furniture is well documented and lives up to all applicable requirements pertaining to the responsible use of timber in furniture production. Likewise, we are FSC certified and are proud to increase our production of FSC branded products, year after year.

Wooden furniture

There are good reasons for selecting products that are prepared from wood. Wood is a beautiful, vibrant and natural material, which is nice to touch and to be in contact with.

Unlike most other raw materials, wood is a renewable resource.  Many other materials are based on commodities such as oil, coal and metals,  raw materials that do not  decomposeonce they have  been used. However, wood is sustainable, recyclable and it will naturally decompose. . The only premise is our willingness and determination to manage the forest resources.

From the perspective of climate control, forest management is of prime importance and it is  difficult for consumers and producers to assess whether or not a piece of timber originates from a sustainable forest. For that reason, there are certification systems backed by the EU and the responsible timber producing countries that  focus on documenting the path of timber from the forest to the consumer. Cinas adopts a firm policy of procuring timber and finished wood products from producers who are covered by the two most important certification schemes,  FSC and V-Legal  Any consumer can be confident that a Cinas wood product has been produced with sustainable resourcing as a prime priority.
