Before our first plank was ever made, our goal has been not only to create floors that are not only beautiful to look at but also that are environmentally responsible and promote environmental sustainability. With a strong commitment to the world around us, our products are made with exacting processes for sustainable harvesting, promotion of regrowth and reduction of our carbon footprint.
Our state of the art manufacturing facility utilizes energy efficient equipment. Elaborate ducting systems allow for the collection of dust that is created during the manufacturing process. Our dust collector reduces any excess noise, saves electricity and is completely self-sustained. All of these components, in turn, provide us with an exceptionally clean and safe working environment.
PurParket believes in yield optimization by using and processing as much of the log as possible to further reduce waste. We believe in providing our clients with several grade options that ultimately combine quality, durability and piece of mind.
Our promise is to create and uphold environmental standards and build initiatives outside of our production processes. This is a key part of our company culture. This year we have partnered with Tree Canada and will be planting 2500 trees, aiding in the pursuit of a greener and healthier environment for all Canadians.
WHAT IS CARB AND WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?
CARB stands for California Air Resources Board. It is a department of the California Environmental Protection Agency that was established in 1967. The main purpose of this board is to maintain and improve air quality, researching causes and solutions for air pollution.
The regulation has to do with reducing formaldehyde emissions from composite wood products, hardwood plywood, particleboard and medium density fiberboard (MDF).
Although Canada does not have a regulation set as of yet, PurParket believes in the importance of providing products that set a standard for our industry.
