Our commitment to a healthy living environment

VOC Free Environment?

We are committed to helping our customers create a healthy living environment by striving to significantly reduce the volatile organic compounds (VOC) in our products.

Our cabinets are compatible with the Low Emission, Low Allergen (LELA) house building guidelines. Note: as individual tolerances vary we advise you to discuss specific needs with us.

LELA design aims to use minimal levels of chemicals to provide a healthy living environment, helping to prevent allergies and supporting sufferers of allergies and idiopathic environmental intolerance/multiple chemical sensitivity (MCS).

Our Cabinets

Our cabinetry is manufactured using solid pine – we never use MDF or chipboard. We use formaldehyde-free glue and take care to reduce emissions where we can. We offer customers with allergies the option to finish their cabinets with VOC-free paint and lacquer.

Fulfilling our environmental responsibility


We choose our suppliers carefully to ensure they are as environmentally conscious or “green” as we are.

Manufacturing

While our manufacturer acknowledges their impact on the environment in terms of waste generation, air and water emissions and the use of raw materials, all relevant environmental legislation is fully complied with and requirements exceeded where possible. Efficient use is made of energy and resources wherever possible.

Our manufacturer regularly assesses and looks 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. Meanwhile, our company details and range of bespoke cabinetry can be easily accessed through our website, considerably reducing requests for physical copies of our brochure.

Wood & Wood are building up a network of suppliers throughout the country. We anticipate that a home visit to discuss your new kitchen, bedroom or bathroom will eventually involve only a local journey.
