Hospitality Rattan's Environmentally Friendly Manufacturing Process
All of Hospitality Rattan products are green. From its basic raw materials of rattan poles, peels, leather, bamboo, abaca, lampacanay, wood, leather strips, and boards, down to other materials like nails, staples, water-based adhesives, finishes, stains, glazes and packing materials, all have minimum impact to the environment and are safe, biodegradable, recycled, and mostly recyclable. Aside from this, the products have undergone an environmentally-friendly process that makes them "greener." The company's rattan components are sourced from sustained-yield managed forests, which means the methods used to grow and harvest the rattan vines ensure the long-term life of the forest and protect the biodiversity of the forest's ecosystems.
Hospitality Rattan is committed to buying and using all materials, from rattan and hardwood to finishing materials, from reputable and renewable suppliers and seeks appropriate evidence that suppliers are in compliance with this policy. Hospitality Rattan strives to use materials that are processed in an environmentally responsible manner, or consist of a high level of recycled material. Finishing materials and stains used in Hospitality Rattan's furniture products consist of 75% water-based solutions which evaporate upon application with reduced or Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs). The furniture factories use water-based glues, stains, topcoats and other finishes on all of their products. The switch from traditional solvent-based processes to water-based processes involved consolidating several processes by the factories, resulting in an 85% reduction in VOC emissions.
