WHAT SUSTAINABILITY MEANS TO US

Totem Road Stool

As we sit at the forefront of the sustainable living revolution, we thought it was time to delve a little deeper into what sustainability means to us and why it drives every decision we make.

In its simplest form, sustainable consumption asks that people consider the impact their choices have on future generations. Which is why we have a whole-hearted commitment to minimising the impact of modern throwaway culture by dedicating ourselves to bringing you on-trend, timeless pieces without any costs to the environment.

As expressed by our CEO and Founder, Don Garvan, we believe that “There is little point in having a product made from sustainably sourced raw materials if the finished product ends up in landfill within 2 to 5 years. A lot of furniture on the market has a very short lifespan and is often disposed of after only a few years. In part, a disposable culture is the underlying cause of this, however poor quality and design obsolescence is also a major factor. If you are going to be a part of the solution you need to be producing, and purchasing products that take into consideration all aspects of sustainability.”

This is why you will discover that each Totem Road authentic piece is made using only responsibly sourced materials with a certified chain of custody from forest to finished product. We source our white solid oak from sustainably managed German forests that support regeneration, biodiversity and the protection of native fauna.

This ensures sustainable choices from start to finish all the way through to your beautiful new piece of furniture arriving in your home with fully recyclable and biodegradable packaging to reduce both yours and our environmental footprint. We always encourage our Totem Road family to consciously select products which take and give back in equal measure and we continue to pay it forward by donating a percentage of all profit to environmental and humanitarian causes.
