Sustainability is top of mind for many people these days, and that’s true at Gerber Wood as well! By integrating eco-friendly principles into our architectural and interior design projects, we seek to lower our impact on the environment. When you work with us, you can feel good about your eco actions, too!
Sustainably Sourced Materials
One of the most important aspects to consider in our woodworking projects is where our materials come from. For example, sustainable wood comes with FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certification. These forests must be maintained in an eco-friendly manner that offsets any damage caused by logging activities. This often includes restoring areas that have been logged. Using reclaimed wood from barns or wine barrels can also help us create visually distinctive products without the need for harvesting new trees.
Making the Most of Our Resources
By using the latest CNC machining tools and other cutting-edge equipment, we are able to focus on two other sustainability areas: material conservation and energy efficiency. CNC machining allows for precise cuts, limiting how much wood potentially goes to waste. Any sawdust or wood scraps can also be re-used for other projects. In addition, this equipment tends to use less energy because it can produce finished parts at a much faster rate. By reducing our own waste and energy consumption, we can further limit our impact on the environment.
By following key sustainability practices at every stage of our work, we deliver results that don’t just look and perform great, but are also environmentally sound. You can have confidence that you’re keeping your carbon footprint in check, no matter what your wood project might be.
