And are there any true standout pieces in their beautiful collection? In this article we’ll be taking a closer look at the company and its green ethos.

About Alexander Rose
Started in 1994, Alexander Rose began life as a supplier of Ghanaian-made, outdoor hardwood furniture. The business has changed and grown significantly since then but the same dedication to quality and excellent design remains. Their furniture is no longer manufactured in Ghana; in 2010 the business was sold to a Bolivian company who source the materials for their creations from ecologically responsible, sustainable forests in South America.

Sustainably Sourced Alexander Rose Garden Furniture
The crux of Alexander Rose garden furniture is that, from beginning to finished product, each piece has been created without unnecessary harm to the environment. The company ensure that this is the case by getting to know the ‘stories’ of each item they design and sell. From the felling of the tree to the shipping of the completed item, they seek to ensure that the entirety of the process is as environmentally sound and ecologically responsible as possible.

Alongside ensuring that all wood is sourced from sustainably managed FSC certified sustainable forests; the company also strive to keep reducing their Carbon footprint.

By refusing to over package their furniture, the company significantly reduce the environmental impact of their business. The packaging that is used is easy to recycle, further minimising any negative environmental effect.

On top of all this, all their furniture comes with clear, comprehensive care and maintenance instructions which allow customers to enjoy the product for many years to come without wasting resources on replacing old, tired looking items.

Alexander Rose Garden Furniture and the FSC
Their involvement with the FSC (Forestry Stewardship Council) is particularly important to the company. The FSC are dedicated to stopping harm to the world’s forests, particularly in the Amazon where logging is seriously jeopardising the future of the rainforest.

Their garden furniture is made from high-quality wood sourced from FSC approved sustainable forests in Bolivia, ensuring that no natural environments are harmed. This FSC forest is carefully managed and maintained to ensure that the creatures that call it home are in no danger and that the diverse flora and fauna who call the forest home flourish.

If you have a green conscience and are interested in ecologically responsible design, the Alexander Rose garden furniture range contains a fantastic array of gorgeous designs which you can enjoy guilt free.
