Respecting Our Planet
We are committed to producing safe, environmentally friendly products in a way that protects the earth and all the living things that share it. We procure our own hardwood in compliance with all local and international standards for sustainable forestry management. No exceptions are made and no corners are cut when it comes to compliance and stewardship.
We are CARB 2 compliant, meaning that our products adhere to the stringent requirements set by the State of California Air Resources Board (CARB) regulating the emission of formaldehyde.
We are compliant with the U.S. Lacey Act of 2008 which bans commerce in illegally sourced plants and their products, including timber and wood products.
Where applicable, all products have received FloorScore certifications for additional indoor air quality.
TSCA TITLE VI-
The Formaldehyde Standards for Composite Wood Products Act was signed into law July 7, 2010, and added Title VI to the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). The law established limits for formaldehyde emissions from composite wood products: hardwood plywood (veneer and composite core), particleboard, medium-density fiberboard (MDF), and thin-MDF. The national emissions standards in the law are designed to reduce exposures to formaldehyde, avoid harmful health effects, and mirror the emission standards previously established by the California Air Resources Board (CARB) for products sold, offered for sale, supplied, used or manufactured for sale in California. Congress tasked EPA with developing regulations to implement this law.
