sustainability

doing our bit to protect our natural resources

sustainability sits at the heart of everything we are at TREE - from our solid eco-wood furniture and home accessories that we offer, to our initiatives and practices that help protect our planet.

the lowdown

here at TREE, we’re committed to doing our bit to protect our natural resources so you can rest assured you’re investing in a naturally stylish piece that’s the real sustainable deal.

FSC™

we work with the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC™), an independent, globally reputed forest certification system which ensures that our vigorous sustainability standards are met. when a TREE piece features the FSC™ logo, this indicates that it has been made from wood from responsibly managed forests or reclaimed from FSC™-certified sources. psst – our paper is also FSC™-certified!

we're incredibly proud of our long-standing relationship with Trees4Trees, who we work with to give back to our environment and keep our natural resources replenished. click here to learn more about our transformational tree planting project at Wonosari village in Central Java, Indonesia.

reclaimed wood

reuse and renew is a motto we live by at TREE and no more so than through our reclaimed wood collections. we salvage old wood from abandoned houses, boats and a myriad of other sources, and breathe new life into it in the form of sustainably stylish furniture. its durable properties are what enables it to stand up to the elements, giving way to a patina and a unique story to tell.

reclaimed wood is just one of a host of sustainable materials from which our pieces are lovingly crafted. discover more here

green inside and out!

alongside our products and tree planting initiatives, we also carry out green practices in every part of our business to reduce environmental impact where we can.

we are proud to have received:

  • the CarbonCare® Champion Label 2021, recognising our achievement of being a carbon neutral business
  • a certificate of merit from the Hong Kong Awards for Environmental Excellence for three consecutive years since 2018
  • the Hong Kong Green Organisation title for 2020-2022

even the smallest of steps can make a big impact on the environment, and we're committed to creating a sustainable earth:

  • we work with HK Recycles to reduce the amount of waste sent to landfills
  • we use recyclable food packaging in our TREE café, including containers and plates made from corn that can biodegrade in 28 days
  • we encourage our team to minimise printing or to otherwise use recycled or FSC™-certified paper

“don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap, but by the seeds you plant” – Robert Louis Stevenson, novelist
