Sustainable raw materials
We believe, the most effective way that a manufacturing company can make the world more sustainable is by using sustainable raw materials.
By chosing a product from Tvilum you help protect the forests. The materials from which our furniture is produced comes from responsibly managed FSC™-certified forests or other controlled sources. Forest Stewardship Council™ (FSC) is a global non-profit organization, that works to develop environmental, social and economically sustainable use of the worlds forests.
In addition, some of our raw materials are made from recycled materials. This is a key goal for us, and we work continuously to ensure that as much as possible is recycled.
Over the coming years, we will downsize and eventually completely phase out our use of EPS, which is also known as expanded polystyrene. This material is typically produced on oil; the possibilities for recycling are poor globally, and the material does not easily degrade in the nature.
The same applies to our other use of plastic in the packaging, which turns into waste as soon as the end user has assembled the furniture. Here, we are in the process of finding the best solutions, so we make sure that our future plastic consumption is optimized in relation to the entire material life cycle.
