SolidBuild and the Environment

Go Back

Today, any serious business is committed to the environment.  Solid Build knows, and believes that in order to be a successful business we must practice and inform our customers that our products, have it be garden sheds or log cabins are not harming the ecosystem.

Solid Build is not a business that wipes out natural resources for a profit.  We know this is not good business.  Being “green” is not only important to Solid Build but it is essential to the security of our business’ future.  We rely on natural wood to make our products therefore we replant more than what we use.

Solid Build uses slow growth pine for garden sheds, log cabin and gazebos kits. Because the quality of wood we have chosen takes a long time to mature our business is also limited.  The slow growth pine is the best material for our sheds and if this means less SolidBuild sheds, but higher quality product, this is what we do.  Your garden shed, log cabin, gazebo or pool house kit are of the best quality that will last you and your family many years.

According to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations Forest Report of 2011, Europe’s forest have steadily increased from 1990-2010.  This is in part of forests moving into what use to be agricultural land and also sustainable practices  enforced by European government.

Europe is the only continent where forest have increased during the last couple of decades.  We are committed to keeping this trend alive.  A part of being sustainable is practicing fair labor to our employees.  About 1.1 million people work producing forest goods in Europe.  SolidBuild does not maximize their profits while paying bare minimum to their employees.  As with sustaining their product, SolidBuild is committed to it’s workers and providing them good jobs.

We are certified by the Forest Stewardship Council(www.fsc.org), a non-governmental, non-profit organization that works for responsible management of world forests following the highest social and environmental criteria.  FSC oversees the sustainable removal of wood material that “maintains the forest’s biodiversity, productivity and ecological processes while socially benefiting local people.”  Please feel free to contact us for any information regarding our practices and certificates.
