Our Wood.

Sustainably sourced and certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC)

With Plastic being such a huge threat to the environment, the use of sustainable products is becoming vital to ensure a cleaner, greener planet. Leo & Friends is committed to sustainability, with all our woods being sustainably sourced and certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). Together we can continue to innovate with products while also protecting our natural resources and ensuring our children have a bright future with a cleaner environment. The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) is an international non-profit, multi-stakeholder organization established in 1993 to promote responsible management of the world's forests. The FSC does this by setting standards on forest products, along with certifying and labeling them as eco-friendly.

RECYCLED WOOD

With our commitment to sustainability, where possible, we use recycled wood. We produce this by turning existing wooden products into powder which is then compressed into solid board. This helps reduce the amount of deforestation while also reducing the amount of waste contributing to landfill.
