Certified Green Business

Posted by

We are pleased to announce we are a certified green business by California Green Business Network.  

At Rustic Wood Accents we have always used reclaimed or salvaged wood for creating the variety of products we make for our clients.  We use our scraps of wood for samples or donate to local organizations and artists.  

In our office environment, we use green cleaning and paper products. In our shipping department, we reuse boxes and shipping materials for sending out our samples.    

We also donate to One Tree Planted a tree to be planted for every product created. 

We are honored to be certified.
