Footprint - Totem Road

Footprint

Treading softly

Totem Road is committed to constantly evolving to achieve the most responsible stewardship of the planet possible. It's our mission to tread lightly and continually reduce our company footprint.

Our business ethos embraces the Iroquois Seventh Generation principle, and we make every decision today to benefit our children seven generations in the future. We believe people are looking to depart from mass consumerism, and we encourage the conscious selection of products that take and give back in equal measure. To help achieve this vision, we give back what we take, donating two and a half percent of all sales to a charity of your choice from a nominated list.


Natural materials

Wood 
We source fully sustainable Solid American and European White Oak from coastal Mediterranean and North America plantations. All our wood is select logged not clear-felled to support regeneration, biodiversity and the protection of native fauna. Our furniture is crafted from the highest quality natural materials with no veneer, plywood or Medium-density fibreboard (MDF).

Packaging
Your Totem Road furniture arrives securely packed in fully recyclable and biodegradable packaging. We choose not to wrap your pieces in petrochemical-based packaging such as polystyrene due its large manufacturing footprint and the toxic substances it contains. Rest assured your packaging won't contribute to landfill or harm the environment, so your great, great grandchildren enjoy our planet. 

Meaningful journey

Chain of Custody

To us, sustainability means more than just supporting responsible forest management. Our transparent chain of custody goes beyond certifications because we take personal care of the environment and the local communities involved in our business. Our factories are part of Totem Road and our relationship with the manufacturer dates back more than 20 years. Unlike others, we oversee every step of the production process, regularly visiting the sources of our timber and supporting our team.

ISO9001 Certification

Our ISO9001 certification spans continents to ensure quality management systems are in place from the beginning to the end of our manufacturing process. As a result, Totem Road furniture is produced and delivered to the highest quality standards while providing a positive and safe working environment for our teams across the globe for your enjoyment.
