All the wood that Van Swaay Duurzaam Hout uses, has FSC or PEFC-certificate. All the wood with PEFC certificate is coming from Europe, which assures that working conditions and other social aspects are taken into account during production. If the glue is suitable for re-use, composting or burning is not yet known. Probably this is not possible because of red assessed ingredients. In that case the glue, which is less than 0,5%, can be separated from the wood, or the total fingerjoint can be sawed out.
