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 hardwood seating we use only those suppliers who can prove sensitivity to environmental considerations and who purchase responsibly sourced material. Each of our traditional seating products originate from FSC - certified plantations.
These well-crafted, FSC certified hardwood benches feature an attractive, traditional design which is complementary to any surrounding. Complete with backrests and armrests, they combine comfort with an aesthetic design and are perfect for use in tough environments and natural settings.
We also design and manufacture a range of eco-friendly recycled material seats and benches which can be recycled at the end of their long service life.
Glasdon offer the option to add a commemorative or memorial plaque to your chosen wooden park bench. This is a popular option if the bench is to be placed in a cemetery or community garden to dedicate to a loved one. Alternatively, choose a different style or material with the full range of memorial benches.
