Carolina Table has been committed to reusing and recycling materials before it was fashionable. We employ environmentally responsible procedures throughout all phases of the manufacturing process. We have instituted a variety of environmentally friendly manufacturing technologies and innovative plant management procedures which allow us to conserve energy, reduce waste and reclaim materials and components.
We partner with vendors who are equally committed to adhering to environmental regulations and are members of the Forest Stewardship Council and we purchase raw materials from local suppliers and from domestic and renewable sources. The woods we use are harvested by suppliers who regularly reseed their lands and use advanced reforestation and land management techniques. We do not use wood from old growth forests or rainforests.
Table substrates are made of particle board which is made from 100% recycled lumber and wood products which meets California CARB 3 requirements. Our milling and sanding departments use equipment to capture and reuse all sawdust and particles. The dust collection system reduces airborne contaminants within the building and maintains a clean and healthy working environment for our employees.
We use water-based adhesives. All our waste solvents are recycled in a distillation process. Over 80% of the distilled material is so pure that it is able to be reused by the finishing department. The remainder is used to fuel boilers.
Implementing sustainable practices and production methods isn't just the right thing to do, it's the smart thing to do - for the environment, our customers and our planet's future.
