Since its inception Jewett Farms + Co has become a leader in sustainable business practices. Best environmental practice informs all our decisions from sourcing sustainably grown, regionally milled hardwoods to protecting the air we breathe and the health of our employees by choosing formaldehyde free veneer core materials as well as water based finishes.
Our sustainability practices are constantly evolving. Currently, we are moving toward a zero waste facility with our company-wide single stream recycling program and donations of all saw dust and wood waste to local farms.
As cabinetmakers and woodworkers, we recognize the vital role that our environment plays in our business. Our innovations and choices are driven by the goal of always being stewards of the earth. We don’t have ‘green bullet points’, our philosophy and practices are all encompassing and result in a high-quality product made in the most environmentally responsible way.
In 2017 we are committing to double down on our efforts of sustainability and to affect change in our industry. As a proud American company, we believe it is our responsibility to be ambassadors of responsible manufacturing. To provide an example of positive environmental action despite national actions to the contrary.
