Conservatories built with care for the Environment

Caring for the future of our planet is now a mainstream responsibility and increasingly customers are making environmentally friendly choices to preserve our planet for future generations.

Timber conservatories are made from natural renewable sources. But indiscriminate logging had a severe impact on our planet from the destruction of natural forests to climate change affecting all continents around the world.

Friends of the Earth have classified all known timbers on their website. Below are some that you may be offered from conservatory manufacturers and their rating will allow you to make the right choice for the future of our planet. Choose an environmentally friendly conservatory!
