Sustainability

Materials sourcing

Witley Jones Furniture use a variety of materials for our furniture products including natural veneers, melamine faced MDF and Plywood.

We only use legally sourced and sustainable timber from FSC and PEFC accredited suppliers.

A variety of finishes are available with melamine (plain colours, wood effects, metal or even stone effects); which is also very robust and easy to clean. Natural veneers offer the chance to use a natural product, whilst being sprayed in formaldehyde-free lacquer offers a robust and safe layer of protection.

We choose an MDF core as standard as we’ve found it to provide more longevity than chipboard alternatives in educational environments; we would recommend an MDF or plywood core.

All our packaging is recyclable or reusable.

Biomass

We generate renewable energy through our biomass and extraction system using our waste products and off cuts from furniture.

The energy is used to heat our offices and factory ensuring that the self-sufficient.

Creating clean energy and aiding the environment is a key value for our organisation and the investment in the system has significantly reduced the quantity of waste that is sent to landfill.

Social / community activities

As a family run business, our local community is an important part of what we do, this can be seen through our staff who are all from the local area.

We provide work experience opportunities for students from local schools in the Wyre Forest in order to help the next generation of talent understand the world of work and the opportunities in their local area.

Witley Jones support a number of charities through the donation of our services and furniture. We have worked closely with the Cotswold RDA and KEMP Hospice in recent years when they have required pieces of furniture.
