Keepin' It Green
The vast majority of our products are composed of 100% upcycled materials. "Upcycling" is the process of re-purposing items or materials into a more useful product. This invariably extends the life of the original materials. Where once beautiful oak was rotting away in a landfill, now it can be enjoyed for decades as a unique, sustainable work of art. At Artful Pallet, we strive to ensure that each work appreciates the inherent value of the natural materials used in construction.
We throw nothing away! Lengthier pallet pieces are reserved for larger furniture projects, mostly porch swings, benches and tables. Cut off pieces are stored separately for smaller projects, such as picture frames and fairy hotels. Saw Dust is donated to a local mushroom cultivator, and everything else keeps my kiddos warm all winter, or cooks s'mores in the summer!
It is a growing trend in the world of business to keep a conscious eye toward the environmental footprint of the company. The value of investing in local, environmentally responsible, functional & durable furnishings is nearly self-evident. At Artful Pallet, we understand that business owners want to connect with the local community, lessen their impact on the environment and ultimately, end up with a highly functional, aesthetically forward product that will last for years to come.
