a sustainable choice
Every step counts.
Our mission as a company is to fight climate change with sustainable design and material technology. That's why we've developed the world's first 100% waterproof solid wood composite made from real wood chips - with a minimal CO2 footprint. Our material is an innovative combination of solid wood and resin based adhesives. Approximately 80% of the material is solid wood.
Our products are manufactured in Finland at Woodio’s own factory with close to carbon neutral manufacturing process. Our product moulding technology does not require high amounts of water and energy, or high-temperature ovens to make the final product. This is one of the reasons why our carbon footprint is a lot lower than bathroom materials traditionally have. Woodio washbasin GWP value is 80% less when compared to a similar sized ceramic basin.
The low weight of the final product and durability also reduce emissions and losses in logistics
Our material is far more impact resistant than many other bathoom materials, making it practically unbreakable in normal use. It is maintenance free and the expected life time is the same as with any traditional bathroom materials – or even longer.
Our solid wood composite material serves as a CO2 storage, and all products can be burned as energy waste. This means that no landfill waste is generated at the end of the product’s lifecycle.
