Designing for sustainability
I've always been aware that my job involves wastage so I take care to make my work as sustainable as possible to minimise my impact on the environment.
One way of doing this is through sustainable design. When discussing a project with a client I will look at ways at minimising waste. Sometimes all it takes is a small adjustment to the design to save significant wastage. Of course, as a client, the final choice is yours but the option is there for you.
I only use FSC Certified timber for my carpentry.
I also minimise my waste by giving my wood shavings to local stables, farms and the general public that need bedding for their animals.
In the near future I am hoping to donate off-cuts to local colleges for their workshops.
This will in effect leave 0% waste.
