Have you ever seen the FSC® label on wooden products?

The FSC label identifies FSC certified products containing wood from well-managed and responsible forests that meet strict environmental, social and economic standards.

The acronym FSC refers to the organisation Forest Stewardship Council, but what is Forest Stewardship Council?
It is a not-for-profit organisation based in Bonn, Germany, which has set itself the goal of certifying industrial forests and plantations for a suistinable forestry policy.

 

What is FSC certification

Climate change is profoundly damaging ecosystems, causing dangerous consequences for the planet; the second cause is deforestation.

FSC certification ensures that the forest of origin of the wood used has been independently inspected and assessed according to strict environmental, social and economic standards. These standards are based on the 10 Principles and 70 Criteria for Responsible Forest Management, which are defined and kept up-to-date by FSC with the participation of all stakeholders.

What is FSC certified wood: PlayWood's choice

PlayWood has also chosen to use wood from FSC certified forests. What does it mean and why do we use the Forest Stewardship Council certification?

Having an Forest Stewardship Council certified wood means working in a way that respects nature. This allows us to adhere to FSC forest management standards that include protecting water quality, prohibiting the cutting of old-growth forests, preventing the loss of natural forest cover and prohibiting the use of highly toxic chemicals. Choices such as these allow us to offer sustainable and health conscious products.

FSC certified wood even for children

PlayWood is committed to providing beautiful and functional furniture for children's bedrooms. Our main products include the Happycentro bed, a bed that grows with the child, and the Adakto modular system, a piece of furniture based on Montessori teachings for independent child growth. These products make it possible to create a functional space for the child's growth and attentive to his health; he will in fact spend most of his time in his room and the quality of this time is important. Children are particularly sensitive to their environment, they interact with it and learn from it. FSC wood, formaldehyde-free and 100% natural, makes the relationship between the child and the environment of the highest quality.

The properties of FSC certified wood

Psychologists confirm the direct relationship between the furnishing of spaces and the emotions of their inhabitants. Some environments are capable of influencing the moods, feelings and sensations of each of us; this is especially the case if natural furniture is used in these environments. 

Wood is capable of giving peace and tranquillity by directly recalling nature and purity, making it particularly suitable for rooms such as the bedroom and living room. It gives a sense of warmth and security, protects against the cold and isolates the room from the weather and external noise. At the same time it is synonymous with refinement and well-being, becoming one of the most popular materials for interior design. No less important are the positive notes and the sense of responsibility towards the environment that a sustainable and durable material such as wood FSC provides.

FSC certified wood: solving problems from the root

FSC wood not only has a positive effect on people's moods and emotions, it also has an impact on their physical well-being. At the root of it all lies the nature of wood; it is a material with vital properties that, if extracted and processed correctly, are preserved even when the wood of the tree is no longer connected to the ground. These properties allow it to make a strong contribution to wellbeing and to be an attractive, environmentally friendly and healthy choice for our homes.

FSC certified wood has a positive influence on the quality of rest due to the feeling of security and relaxation it conveys. Very important are its antibacterial and anti-parasitic properties, which allow us to fight the phenomenon that experts call 'Indoor pollution'. This pollution is caused both by particles from outside and by all the micro-factors such as paint, mould, dust and electromagnetic waves present inside the home; over time they have negative effects on our bodies.

The amount of time we spend in our homes is considerable and it is therefore necessary to take into account these factors and the well-being that FSC wood furniture and furnishings can bring.

The importance of FSC certified wood in the workplace

A happy workplace makes work more productive. There's no doubt about it. In recent years, in fact, companies are betting heavily on welfare systems and well-being of their employees.
One of the welfare systems that companies like Google are betting big on is the presence of natural elements in offices. The proven beneficial effects of natural elements on people's mood and body make them extremely important for the workplace. In fact, they are able to reduce stress, stimulate innovation, creativity and concentration. The happiness of those who work certainly increases their productivity and, consequently, their contribution to the company. Finally, a healthy environment allows the company to take care of the health of its employees while also reducing healthcare costs in the long term.

PlayWood has chosen to use only FSC wood to create the perfect office and home office furniture. A healthy, harmonious place to work is essential to working well. PlayWood creates natural wood furniture that can inspire and spark ideas, making work more creative and enjoyable.
