As a teak furniture manufacturer, we at Atlanta Teak Furniture feel a responsibility to contribute to the
green movement through sustainable practices and recycling. Here are some of the ways that Atlanta Teak is “Green”:
Sustainable teak: The teak we use in our furniture construction all comes from sustainable and
renewable forest sources.
The benefits of wood:
1. While the raw materials for other products (aluminum, stainless steel, plastic, etc.) must be fabricated using energy-intensive and chemical-laden processes, our primary raw material (teak) grows naturally with no need for energy input.
2. Once the useful life of a wood piece of furniture is at its end, the wood will biodegrade in the landfill.
The benefits of teak:
With its high durability (75+ years), teak furniture will last decades longer than furniture made from other woods. Consequently, fewer trees will be used as it will need to be replenished much less frequently. Further, although teak furniture is biodegradable, it will be decades before it even needs to be thrown out and end up in a landfill.
Atlanta Teak recycles all of its cardboard boxes whenever possible, especially on all orders that we assemble at our Atlanta warehouse.
