The environmental benefits of reclaimed wooden furniture

When we buy furniture, such as settees, beds, coffee tables and dining room tables and chairs that have been made out of reclaimed wood, it naturally saves trees from being cut down. If, for example, 30 trees were saved by using reclaimed wood, the trees would absorb as much as 946lb of carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere each year.

What’s more, 30 trees can provide a day’s supply of oxygen for up to 120 people, and the net cooling effect for 30 young trees is equivalent to 300 air conditioning units that are operating at 20 hours a day.
