At Manchester Wood we live sustainability. From corn growing in our backyard behind our mill, to our leftover sawdust used for many local farmers animal bedding. We care about our environment, and we feel what pertains most to our customers is our lumber practices, a key element, as that’s our introduction to your home.
Every few years the standards lower for lumber grading, which is at a near constant drop in quality due to carbon dioxide emissions climbing in our atmosphere. The evolution of trees has been curved greatly by man, the practices as a World society we have.
With this honest review of a key natural resource, Manchester Wood is here to prove that we’re one of the leaders in an eco-conscious society with the product we provide. Not to mention the far exceeding quality compared to similar products made in China and Vietnam, where practices with natural resources are startling, and are leading to a quickly diminishing environment, which in turn, hurts our trees here in America, and the World.
In a recent press release, “Manchester Wood Commits to Producing Environmentally Sustainable Furniture,” our President Ed Eriksen addresses the need for small businesses to take on an eco-conscious approach:
“We understand that the move toward environmentally sustainable manufacturing needs to be initiated and promoted by small businesses. Our goal is to create top quality furniture from beautiful American hardwoods for homes and offices with minimal impact on the environment. In fact, we believe that by sourcing our wood from sustainable forests, we are greatly enhancing the crafts that we offer to our customers.”
If you purchase wood furniture from our major overseas competitors, you’re buying into their practices, and much of it goes unchecked. Manchester Wood partners with the most responsible and caring lumber companies in the World, with a careful eye on eco-systems, proper tree growth, and most importantly, providing a healthy piece of material for crafting.
We hope this information solidifies your decision in supporting businesses with healthy practices, and a quality in product to back it up. For more information on our commitment to environmentally sustainable furniture, click here.
