CRAFT and the Environment
Sustainable Manufacturing Principles.
The management of Creative At Home and the entire CRAFT team is deeply committed to the principles of sustainable manufacturing and the responsible use of natural resources. All of the lumber that is used to make CRAFT’s floors comes from responsibly managed, renewable North American sources.
During manufacturing, our facility has a strict policy of preventing any environmental pollution. We maintain a strict “0% policy” regarding the release of air-borne contaminants into the environment as well as processing 100% of liquid-based materials at an industrial waste treatment facility. Our shop works constantly to improve adherence to the “3 Rs”; Reducing waste wherever possible by minimizing unnecessary packaging (without compromising product quality); Reusing potential waste material (such as trim ends and ripping waste) by creatively developing it into a better engineered product; and by Recycling all other materials and using recyclable packaging materials whenever possible.
We also have a strict policy of only using coatings and glues that have a proven track record of product safety. We use a 100% Zero-Formaldehyde, “F Four Star” glue imported from Japan, the country that has the world’s strictest standards with respect to formaldehyde emissions from finished wood products.
Creative At Home and the CRAFT team will continue to uphold our commitment to the environment as we continue to be a leader in the crafting of world-class handmade wood flooring.
