FSC® | Green Leaf | 100% Legal Teak Wood | Sustainably Sourced
Sustainability is very important to us. Where we source our wood from could have a direct impact on the environment if we do not take it seriously. Our factories are required by law to have SVLK certification and conform with Indonesian - UK VPU's (Voluntary Partnership Agreements) UK FLEGT
We receive the The Green Leaf™ Eco Standard (GLES) certificate to verify this process. This demonstrates a firm, authentic and effective commitment to sustainability, both towards the environment and socially.
Rest assured our products are from sustainable sources. Memorial Benches UK source Teak wood directly from the Indonesian Government who certify that the logs used are legal and meet all applicable Indonesian Laws and Regulations.
The certification that we receive helps reduce illegal logging by providing evidence that timber is from verified legal sources and by providing specific information on the original source of the timber, ensuring these great trees can be enjoyed for generations to come.

As such, Memorial Benches UK have introduced a range of FSC® Benches. The design and construction of the Bench is identical only the source of the wood is different.
