Why Choose Sustainable Flooring?
In the world today we can generally say that CO2 emissions are one of the main causes of our climate change. It is so important for individuals and companies to take climate change into consideration. Let’s take trees. Trees are wonderful and absolutely crucial for our planet. When a tree is growing it absorbs the CO2 from the atmosphere and it is a fact that just one cubic metre of living wood will absorb and break down 1 tonne of CO2. This process is called photosynthesis. What this means is that the CO2 is broken down by the clever tree, stores the carbon and then releases life giving oxygen into the atmosphere!!
That is why it is so important to choose a wood product that had comes from sustainable sources.
PEFC: Program for the endorsement of forestry certification.
