Sustainably sourced, high quality tropical wood.
From tree to live edge slab
We are committed to the environment and sustainable practices. Consequently, we buy our wood in Costa Rica, the world leader in environmental conservation. Here, both logging and the export of tropical hard wood are strictly controlled by the Forestry Ministry (MINAE) and the Ministry of Agriculture (MAG) respectively. Without permits from these ministries, wood will not leave the country.
Our supplier works within the parameters set by both ministries. Not only is every tree purchased by our suppliers logged under permit, but all slabs have also been exported legally. Click here if you want to read more about the entire process from tree to live edge slab.
We carefully select and quality check our live edge slabs on location in Costa Rica prior to shipping to Curaçao.
Costa Rica: a world leader in environmental conservation.
Costa Rica is the world leader in environmental conservation and sustainability.
Since the 1980′ s, Costa Rica has implemented certain strategies to manage and drop its deforestation rate to zero. Firstly, the amount of logging permits became strictly regulated. Secondly, a national forestry commission was put in place to police the forest activity. Lastly, a Forestry Fund was set up, which offers land owners financial incentives per acre owned to conserve their land and prevent degradation.
Today, Costa Rica has doubled its forest cover since 1980, with forest covering 52% of the entire country.
