The Elephant's Trunk is firmly committed to eco-friendly manufacturing and sourcing. Our vendors/factories have gone through extensive measures to assure processes meet the requirements of sustainable production.
Here are some specific ways our vendors/factories are practicing eco-friendly manufacturing:
Wood Sourcing: Purchasing plantation-grown woods for production.
Eco-friendly Lacquers: Water based lacquers are used in the finishing process. these lacquers are non-petroleum based and are friendly to both environment and factory workers. Our vendors have also required it's lacquer source to provide government-certified documentation on the safety of its products.
Recycled Water: Our vendors/factories treat and kiln dries (seasons) all their raw wood. The water used in this process is treated and safely recycled for agricultural use.
Reclaimed Wood: We employ an innovative Vintage Trunk program in which old, neglected dowry chests (see below) are reclaimed and refurbished into beautiful trunks (see below) for a new generation to enjoy.
