According to Rain-Tree.com, the last of the remaining rainforests could be gone in less than 40 years.
By choosing outdoor furniture that is sustainable, you help prevent the loss of the shrinking rainforest. According to Low Impact Living, furniture-grade wood is often sourced from tropical rainforests. In addition, the energy needed to manufacture and transport non-sustainable furniture is great.
Rich’s for the Home offers Jensen Jarrah outdoor furniture, made from Jarrah timber, which is a durable and beautiful hardwood. Jarrah timber is sustainable and hails from southern Western Australia where less than 1 percent of the more than 6.25 million acres is currently being logged. Additionally, no timber is logged from old growth forests.
Since the timber is supplied from regrowth forests only, this means that it is more sustainable because harvesting will never exceed the regrowth. The harvesting of the Jarrah timber is regulated by the Western Australian government as well so many people are keeping an eye out for the impact.
