Loft Desk – Rubberwood & Sustainability
According to WWF, approximately 10% of the world’s forests get cut down yearly to become fast-wood forests. Cutting down more trees than the rate they’re growing can have a severely negative impact on the environment. It can lead to soil erosions, landslides, and floods. Additionally, it can also hasten the effects of global warming. Harvesting rubberwood can reduce those effects since you’re using trees that would have otherwise been burned.
A durable hardwood, belonging to the maple family. It has a strength of about 9500 psi, stiffness of 1.3 million psi, and hardness of 500 pounds- perfect for our Loft Desk
Ideal for furniture
Rubberwood is very stable, with shrinkage and cracking kept to a minimum, making them great for furniture. Moreover, rubberwood has an awesome blonde to medium tan color.
Takes stains well
Rubberwood takes stains and finishes very well. This is especially great if you want to change its appearance to suit your tastes and its setting.

ABOUT FAIR TRADE
Fairtrade is about better prices, decent working conditions, local sustainability, and fair terms of trade for farmers and workers in the developing world. By requiring companies to pay sustainable prices (which must never fall lower than the market price), Fairtrade addresses the injustices of conventional trade, which traditionally discriminates against the poorest, weakest producers. It enables them to improve their position and have more control over their lives.
With Fairtrade you have the power to change the world every day, therefore simple shopping choices you can get farmers a better deal. And that means they can make their own decisions, control their future and lead the dignified life everyone deserves. There are over 1.66 million farmers and workers in 1,411 producer organisations across the Fairtrade system.Buying Fairtrade is easy. There are over 6,000 Fairtrade products such as coffee, tea, flowers and furniture.
