Environmental and Sustainable Timber is a natural, sustainable and recyclable building material, it requires less energy to produce than any other major building product. It is one of the most environmentally friendly building products.
At Timber Blitz we source our timber from quality suppliers who have the environment in mind and get the timber from sustainable sources. If requested we can provide letters or certificates from the supplier stating that the timber came from a sustainable source. By choosing timber in your next project you are helping the environment.
Wood is good for health and wellbeing The use of wood in the interior of a building has clear physiological and psychological benefits that mimic the effect of spending time outside in nature. The feelings of natural warmth and comfort that wood elicits in people has the effect of lowering blood pressure and heart rates, reducing stress and anxiety, increasing positive social interactions and improving corporate image.
These benefits are particularly important for environments where it is difficult to incorporate nature indoors, such as hospitals, where strict health and safety guidelines may prevent the presence of plants, and office environments where views from the window are of roads and neighbouring concrete buildings.
Forest Stewardship Council The FSC® label gives corporations and consumers the assurance that the timber they purchase is sourced responsibly. FSC conserves forests, respects the rights of workers and communities, and is good for business.
At Timber Blitz, we think timber products with the FSC logo are a natural choice. When you buy FSC® products you reward those who have taken good care of the forest. When you buy products with the FSC logo you are doing your part to preserve a legacy for future generations.
By choosing FSC® certified timber you’re taking care of more than your next project, you’re taking care of the forests too.
