At Pickawood, we take nature's natural resources and turn these materials into beautiful custom-made products. We recognize that our actions come with a huge responsibility. The environment is extremely important to us and we are taken every measure possible to protect it. This is why we work hard every single day to ensure we are building an ethical and sustainable brand. We feel we are on the right track but we know there are always ways that we can improve. We outline here the actions we are currently taking to ensure that when you order with us you are guaranteed to receive products that are both ethical and of premium quality. 


The steps to becoming sustainable

 

1. Intelligent manufacturing processes

For us, quality and the environment go hand in hand and this is reflected in our pragmatic approach to production. We mainly utilize natural solid wood and multiplex because these materials are particularly durable and long-lasting. In addition to the advantages of longevity, these materials can also be better-repaired meaning furniture doesn't need to be discarded or replaced.

2. Natural and ethical materials

We only use wood from sustainable forestry to produce our furniture. This means we take important measures to preserve the growth, biological diversity, regenerative capacities and the health and vitality of a forest's ecosystem.

We mostly use BIOFA quality oils to treat many of our furniture products. These oils protect the wood effectively, they are solvent-free and colourless and meet the standard EN 71, part 3. In addition, the oils are stain-resistant and enhance the natural grain of each of our wood types.

3. Commitment to our cause

We are a proud member of the B.A.U.M. e.V., the German Federal Working Group for Environmentally Conscious Management. As part of the largest corporate network for sustainable management in Europe, we see it as our responsibility to always produce our furniture under ecologically sound conditions. We view our wood materials as a valuable gift from nature and the quality and care we take to produce our products reflect the appreciation we have for our raw materials.

4. Packaging and transportation

It is integral that furniture reaches our customers in pristine condition. Therefore, we require sufficient packaging material to guarantee efficient and secure delivery. We are mindful of the careful use of resources and we work hard to minimize packaging waste whilst also maximizing transport safety. When transporting furniture, we save COby bundling loads. Since most of our customers already own sufficient tools and in order to prevent further waste, we deliberately do not include small tools such as Allen keys along with our furniture products

5. Sustainable working practices

In our offices, we provide fresh fruit baskets and water jets so that our employees do not have to bring (plastic) water bottles to work.

In addition, we also provide a supplementary monthly transportation ticket for our employees. This creates an incentive to use public transport in order to reduce carbon emissions.

6. Saving on electricity

We strive to initiate positive change in our working day and our offices have become energy-efficient spaces. Our servers are powered by green electricity and our computer systems are shut down at the end of each day.

Our showroom in Hamburg is also environmentally friendly and we consciously do without bright advertising effects and gimmicks and switch off all lights overnight
