What Goes Around Comes Around –Why Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is so important to us

We strongly believe in using what nature gave us; the right way. Running our business in a responsible way has always been of utmost importance to our family business here in Leamington Spa.
It is very important for us to feel we are committed to sustainability, morally doing the right thing for the environment, for society and that we are seen to be doing the right thing by our customers, community and competitors.

What we do

  • Most of our wooden furniture is 100% FSC® Certified (FSC® C115839)
  • We sell Greendine® , our popular recycled plastic range of furniture
  • We aim to recycle as much of our waste as possible

FSC® - The Forest Stewardship Council®

The FSC®, known as The Forest Stewardship Council® is a world-wide non profit company based in Germany.

The FSC® operates in over 100 markets with the aim of promoting the safe management of the world’s forestation. It helps to protect the precious and often rare wild life and the people who reside there; together with the safety of all local forest workers.

Here at Woodberry we acknowledge the importance of good quality timber, sourced and traded in an ethical and honest way. We want to ensure that our customers always have access to the highest quality timber products.

  • Many of our catalogue products are FSC® Certified (FSC-C115839)
  • These products are produced in accordance with FSC® rules and regulations.
  • Look for the FSC® logo in the catalogue product description box

Greendine - Recycled Plastic Furniture

As well as choosing materials that are ethically sourced, we are always on the look out for innovative materials produced from recycled matter that we can use to design our own furniture range.

Our Greendine® furniture range ticks all the boxes when it comes to sustainability. This hardwearing environmentally friendly, durable plastic is created using a recipe of plastic products

  • Plastic bottles
  • Hay bale wrappings
  • Juice Cartons

What makes this material even more attractive is that any off cuts of the material can be reconstituted by the manufacturer and developed into a new sheet of workable material.

Our Recycling Process

As an established family business of complete integrity, we feel that we have a duty to ensure that we make a positive contribution to help the environment. For Woodberry of Leamington Spa, recycling is incorporated into each and every working day and very much seen as part of the ethics of being a responsible company.

If a product can be recycled, then we will create a process to ensure we generate close to zero waste.

All surplus products that could be deemed as waste are ethically recycled and transformed into a workable product. From offcuts of timber, sawdust and cardboard to recycled plastic furniture, our team are constantly working to ensure there is a significant reduction in our carbon footprint.

In April 2019 we introduced an initiative to recycle all our polythene waste generated from deliveries of pallets where polythene is used as wrapping protection.

“Here at Woodberry of Leamington Spa, we are dedicated to corporate social responsibility which is
