Eco Policy

With the growing public awareness of the environment and its related issues here at Custom Made Furniture we strive to source and use materials and products that are ‘eco friendly’.

We have managed to source a supplier that guarantees all the materials that we buy from them originate from sustainable and correctly managed forests and in particular FSC certified products. FSC (the Forest Stewardship Council) is an international, non-profit making association whose membership includes environmental and social groups and progressive forestry and wood retail companies working in partnership to improve forest management world wide.

Where possible we recycle any packaging material and use paper from well-managed forests.

The movement towards eco-friendly products is gaining momentum. The public are becoming increasingly aware of the damage our environment is experiencing from global warming to air pollution to our diminishing rain forests, to name but a few. Directors Neill and Joanne Roberts, of Custom Made Furniture in Poole wanted to offer their customers furniture that doesn’t literally cost the ‘Earth’.
“Our aim is to dramatically reduce consumption of non earth-friendly items and offer an alternative choice that is better for our planet.”

We have sourced materials from a supplier whom hold the FSC Certificate (Forest Stewardship Council) which means the company can guarantee that their product originates from sustainable and correctly managed forests. And we are continuing to research and source ‘green’ products to add to our ever increasing range.
“People will always want to re-furnish their bedrooms, their kitchens, lounges, studies, places in the home that need to be streamlined and de cluttered and this is what we specialise in. There has been a huge increase in home improvements these last few months and we were really conscious of the vast amount of ‘new’ materials being used so we decided it was important to be able to offer products that were environmentally friendly without losing the quality and choice that we are known for and better still at no extra cost!”

With the local estate agents reporting a surge of activity in January and February it is vitally important for vendors to make their property shine above the rest. Making the property more attractive with smart storage options will always be a bonus to prospective buyers and installing conscious ‘eco friendly’ fitted furniture could be that deciding factor, one things for sure it’s a great selling point.
Carolyn Woods from Poole says “I chose Custom Made Furniture to make my wardrobes and my visual audio unit purely because of their attitude towards the environment, something very important to all of us. It was also refreshing to know that their waste is put to good use, by supporting the local schools and colleges supplying them with off cuts of board so the students can recycle the material into learning practical skills and creating pieces themselves.”
