At Worktop Express, we source all of our timber used for our wooden work surfaces to ensure it is sustainable, and we also work with the International Tree Foundation (ITF) to aid them in protecting and restoring indigenous trees in both the UK and Africa. Our belief that solid wood worktops are a beautiful addition in any kitchen makes us passionate in our endeavours to do as much as we can for trees, because of the benefits that they create, not only for the products that we manufacture, but to the environment as a whole.

Not only do trees provide oxygen, but they also emit carbon which reduces the concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere – meaning they are actively combating climate change. They provide shelter and habitats for a huge range of wildlife around the world, are capable of yielding food and can prevent water pollution and save water. The timber from trees can be used to manufacture a wide range of products – including, but not limited to – our stunning wenge worktops and solid oak work surfaces.

We know that wooden worktops are likely to spread joy throughout your kitchen, but there are a whole host of psychological and sociological benefits that have been attributed to trees. Studies have shown that trees decrease crime in urban areas and that they improve the value of properties too. Hospital patients with views of trees from their beds have recovered more quickly than others who do not, and access to nature has been shown to improve the symptoms of children with ADHD. A practice in Japan called ‘shinrin-yoku’, which roughly translates to ‘forest bathing’ has been popular for a number of years and sees participants fully immerse themselves in the nature of a wooded area for relaxation and stress relief. There are so many fantastic things trees are capable of and that is why it is important to us to replace the ones we use manufacturing our products.

Let us know in the comments below if you can think of any other benefits that trees bring, or get in touch on Facebook or Twitter.
