Our mission is to add beauty to the world, without compromising its health. Thatâ€™s why we take great care to ensure that all of our hardwood comes from certified green, self-renewing sources, where trees are farmed and replanted just like the vegetables you eat. Thereâ€™s no net woodland loss or negative impact on the environment.
Our manufacturers are both FSC and CARB-certified, adhering strictly to the detailed environmental protections, as well as the federal Lacey Act. And, in their manufacturing of Palmetto Road Traditions flooring, nothing is wasted:
â€¢ Tree bark is processed into mulch and soil conditioners
â€¢ Sawdust fuels the boilers that operate dry kilns, and is used in animal bedding
â€¢ Trimmings are chipped and processed into paper and other products
â€¢ Small wood pieces are recovered for use as products such as finger-jointed wood components
Eco-friendly wood finishes
The Enviro + Plus finishes we use were developed by Valspar, an established leader in finishes that are highly eco-friendly while being durable and scratch-resistant as well. Our wood finishes are HAPs-free, and give off zero VOC's as well, surpassing all KCMA coatings performance standards and making it one of the greenest finishing systems on the planet.
