With the explosion of wooden teak garden furniture in recent years, it is increasingly important to make certain the garden furniture you buy comes from well managed plantations. Unfortunately, the arrival of cheaper illegal teak from the Far East is encouraging the trade in non plantation teak.
It is worth noting that sometimes, our morals should extend to our pockets and we should agree to pay the small increase in price for the assurance that our teak garden furniture is made from well managed plantation sources. It is not only better for the planet, but will ensure that the teak logs are of the correct age and therefore result in much better quality timber which should, in turn, ensure your teak garden furniture will last a lifetime. This thought process should extend to our indoor furniture purchasing habits.
That solid oak dining set which you really want should come from responsible plantations. Caring for your furniture also plays a part. Good quality furniture products from well known companies like Faraway Furniture™ will ensure that your purchase should last a lifetime and therefore minimizes the amount of new furniture you have to buy.
This in turn reduces the amount of trees that are cut down. It goes without saying that using patio heaters should be avoided as much as possible. Firepits are a much better and eco friendly alternative.
