What is FSC®?
The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC®), founded in 1993, is an international, non-governmental organisation dedicated to promoting responsible management of the world’s forests. It operates a system of forest certification and product labelling to identify wood from well-managed forests.
Forests are inspected by independent organisations and certified against strict standards. To be given FSC® certification, a forest must be managed in an environmentally appropriate, socially beneficial and economically viable manner.
Only forests that meet these strict standards are then given FSC® certification and the timber allowed to carry the FSC® label.
For Glasdon traditional seating we use only those suppliers who can prove sensitivity to environmental considerations and who purchase responsibly sourced material. All of our traditional seating products originate from FSC® - certified plantations.
These hardwood outdoor benches with backrests and armrests offer the option to add a commemorative / memorial plaque. This is a popular option if the public bench is to be placed in a cemetery or community garden to dedicate to a loved one.
We also offer a wide range of street furniture to coordinate with our seats and benches including litter bins and bollards.
