Bob’s Discount Furniture is involved in a variety of eco-friendly initiatives from recycling programs to responsible wood sourcing. To that end, we are working closely with our suppliers toward our long-term goal of eliminating unacceptable sources of wood. Specifically, we are working with our vendors to increase the amount of responsible wood sourcing in our furniture assortment which includes wood from certified and reclaimed/recycled sources.
Bob’s Discount Furniture’s expectation is that our vendors do not use wood from unacceptable sources, including:
• Illegally harvested or traded timber
• Timber harvested in violation of traditional or civil rights
• Timber harvested from areas in which high conservation values are threatened by poor forest management
• Timber from forests in which genetically modified trees are planted
Our goal is to continually expand our vendors’ 3rd party certification system with a strong preference for the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) as an industry leader in promoting forest management.
As a leader in the furniture industry, in adopting and implementing our Responsible Wood Sourcing Policy, we seek to set a positive example for our peers and to do our part to protect the world’s forests. Let’s all work together to protect our planet!
