Our Commitment to the Environment

Our kitchen cabinets are manufactured solely with solid wood and we are committed to safeguarding the environment. Wood and Wood never use MDF (Medium Density Fibreboard) or MFC (Melamine Faced Chipboard) which is an engineered wooden board containing harmful toxin resins. The UK and most countries regulate the use of MDF and some countries have banned it.

Manufacturing

We choose our business suppliers carefully to ensure they are as environmentally conscious or “green” as we are. Our manufacturer acknowledges that they impact on the environment in terms of the waste they generate, in their use of raw materials and air and water emissions.

All relevant environmental legislation is fully complied with by our manufacturer. Where possible they will exceed those requirements.

They also try to minimise the environmental impact of their work and in particular reduce noise, dust and waste where possible.

Efficient use is made of energy resources wherever possible, they regularly assess and look for ways to:

  • Maximise use of materials
  • Conserve energy and water
  • Reduce, minimise or prevent the generation of waste
  • Recycle or re-use waste

Delivery

We ensure that our delivery companies follow environmental legislation and we don’t use any packaging. All our kitchen cabinets are fully protected in transit with blankets which are re-used for each delivery.

Administration

Our online order process keeps paperwork to a minimum. We recycle paper at the office and our kitchen and company details can be accessed on our website which considerably reduces requests for “hard-copy” brochures.
