At Gardenside, we make a habit of listening to our customers and incorporating their ideas whenever pos sible. Over the years, customers have specifically asked if we could provide an environmentally responsible yet economically viable teak furniture solution. This demand has led to our exciting new FSC-certified teak furniture line.
Gardenside has the distinct advantage of being able to design, manufacture, and distribute its own furni ture, making it possible for us to offer this exceptional FSC certified line. Consumers wishing to support healthy forests and communities should insist on the FSC label when purchasing wood furniture products.
Forest Stewardship Council™ (FSC) is a non-profit organization devoted to encouraging the responsible management of the world’s forests. FSC sets high standards that ensure forestry is practiced in an environmentally responsible, socially beneficial, and economically viable way.
Landowners and companies that sell timber or forest products seek certification as a way to verify to consumers that they have practiced forestry consistent with FSC standards. Independent certification organizations are accredited by FSC to carry out assessments of forest management to determine if standards have been met. These certifiers also verify that companies claim ing to sell FSC certified products have tracked their supply back to FSC certified sources. This chain of custody certification assures that consumers can trust the FSC label. For more information about FSC at the International level, please visit www.fsc.org.
