Environmentally Friendly Furniture
Lugo understands the importance of being environmentally sustainable and considers itself to be an ecologically conscious company. Not only do we produce sustainable furniture, but we use sustainable methods throughout all of our in-house operations, too.
When creating well considered sustainable furniture for our clients, we strive to ensure the highest quality of construction is maintained in order to prolong the product’s life. This subsequently reduces the environmental impact associated with replacing furniture frequently.
Manufacturing Sustainable Furniture
Our eco-friendly furniture is largely constructed from timber which is a recyclable and biodegradable resource. The adhesives, stains and polishes that we use minimise harmful emissions, and wherever possible, we endeavour to use water-based products to produce eco-friendly furniture. A high proportion of the upholstery fabrics we work with are constructed using sustainable yarns such as wool, linen, and cotton which are biodegradable.
As the FSC (Forestry Stewardship Commission) and PEFC (Programme for The Endorsement of Forestry Certification) promote environmentally responsible management of the world’s forests, Lugo endeavours in its pre-qualification of our supply chain to produce sustainable wood furniture, sourcing the majority of our timber from registered FSC and PEFC approved sources.
When required, our raw material suppliers are able to provide us with Chain of Custody certification which confirms the authenticity of the forest of origin and this is a practice we will continue to uphold.
Our packaging consists of strong recyclable cardboard cartons or wool blankets to reduce unnecessary waste. When unpacking furniture on site, cartons are flattened and returned to the factory for reuse.
Educating Our Team To Supply Sustainable Wood Furniture
We are continually educating our employees and suppliers on the negative effects of waste and the benefits of recycling and manufacturing sustainable furniture, to ultimately come together to make a positive impact on the environment.
Lugo strives to quickly identify risks to the environment early and implements the most effective solution to address them. Both our office and manufacturing teams are made aware of their environmental impact to ensure they are mindful and taking steps to reduce waste.
Our Aim - Consistently Produce Environmentally Friendly Furniture
Our aim is to produce outstanding sustainable and environmentally friendly furniture that will be in use for many years to come.
We endeavour to continually improve our environmental performance and minimise the impact of our activities by periodically reviewing our corporate environmental policy in light of both our current and planned activities.
Across all departments, not just in the production of our sustainable furniture, we believe we can make a significant impact in safeguarding our environment.
