Slicethinner furniture manufacturing is committed to produce 100% products using FSC certified wood.

FSC certification is an internationally recognized benchmark for responsible forestry, and its certification means that FSC timber origin forests have been independently tested and evaluated in accordance with the strict principles and standards agreed by the Forest Stewardship Council. Well-managed forests provide a wide range of social and economic benefits as well as environmental services such as people's livelihoods, animal and plants habitats. The FSC standard ensures that these benefits and services are executed realistically and that other management objectives are not overlooked.

What is FSC? Why Slicethinner choose FSC as a third-party certifier?

The FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) is an international standard-setting bureau for defining and measuring well-managed forests and providing traceability through certification. It trains and monitors other designated third-party certified auditors, including the Rainforest Alliance, which provides FSC standards based on rigorous actual certification. FSC is the only recognized timber certification standard for the US Green Building Council.
Slicethinner chooses to work with it because FSC, unlike other timber certification bereau, is committed to actively promoting sustainability and perseverance, requiring applicants to meet the most stringent standards and meeting stringent prerequisites for certification. Unlike others, FSC actively pursues social equity, environmental and social equity.
Pursue persistent economically. Working with FSC helps and ensures we are in a responsible frontier environment.

What processes does Slicethinner need to provide FSC certified furniture?

To provide FSC certification, Slicethinner must be able to track the wood source back to the original forest in every piece of furniture, harvest and comply with FSC requirements. At least 70% of the wood used in the furniture is harvested, from FSC certified forests. . It must comply with the FSC's controlled timber policy for all wood procurement, which means that 30% of the wood used to create FSC balances certified furniture must obtain the five core principles of the FSC Controlled Timber Policy from the forests that meet:
Wood is not illegally harvested, and harvesting does not violate.
The rights of citizens, wood is not harvested from tall forests.
Protecting value, wood is not harvested from the region.
It was converted into a plantation, and the wood has not been genetically modified.

What is the journey between the forest and Slicethinner FSC certified furniture?

All FSC certified furniture solutions must be made of wood and harvested from FSC certified forests. To be FSC certified, forest owners must comply with the highest environmental requirements, including more than 60 detailed performed standards, and regular third-party audits to ensure wood cutting and their forests are properly harvested. The chain of custody follows and cuts logs throughout the distribution channel.
Finally, Slicethinner manufacturing facility must meet strict FSC guidelines and undergo periodic third-party audits to verify that 100% of the wood is traceable to the furniture from which it was made.

Maintaining the earth and a sustainable future. Packaging reduction, environmentally friendly materials, recycled packaging materials.

Maintaining the earth and a sustainable future:
People all over the world are looking for healthier and more sustainable solutions. I hope to inspire and enable more people to achieve a sustainable lifestyle that is simple and affordable for everyone. To achieve this goal by changing our working methods will have a positive effect on the ecological cycle and have a positive social impact everywhere.

We have always been committed to reducing waste of resources. In addition, when designing products, our designers will do everything possible to turn the products into flat packaging, which not only improves transportation efficiency, but also greatly reduces oil consumption and carbon dioxide emissions.

Sustainable packaging design concept. Committed to promoting environmental sustainability in 4 major directions.

Sustainable packaging design concept:
Reduce packaging materials: use flat carton packaging, which we call "flat packaging", so that more products can be loaded per transport, which can reduce the number of transports and reduce oil consumption volume and carbon dioxide emissions.
Extend the life of packaging materials: Establish a packaging recycling mechanism to increase the recycling rate of packaging.
Packaging material innovation and certification: 1. Use recycled plastic materials. 2. Use cartons certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC).

Committed to promoting environmental sustainability in 4 major directions:
1 promoting green procurement
From materials, processes to products, more emphasis is placed on reducing harm to people and the natural environment, providing consumers with high-quality furniture products while taking into account the protection of the environment.
2 Create a friendly workplace
Promote the greening of office workplaces and waste reduction measures to create a friendly workplace environment.
3 Long-term design to maximize product value.
Not all building materials can be fully recycled. Design and plan for building materials that are more difficult to recycle to achieve the concept of circular design. Use the characteristics of the materials to combine, design, or Think about matching with other building materials to achieve more variability, extend the service life, and maximize the value of the product.
