New luxury: 4 Signs a Natural Hardwood Floor is Sustainable

When choosing a natural wood floor, consider more than just its elegant and stylish appearance. Look for businesses dedicated to sustainable practices.

When choosing a natural hardwood floor, it’s important to consider more than just its elegant and stylish appearance. Today, the definition of luxury lies in our connection with nature. Prioritizing sustainable furnishings and materials is not just a passing trend — it's an essential choice.

For that reason, when executing your design project, look for businesses dedicated to ethical and sustainable practices. At RIVA Spain, we believe in achieving a high-end lifestyle in the most natural way possible, keeping you connected to the beauty of the forests.

Here are four signs that demonstrate how our natural hardwood floors are positively contributing to the future of our planet:

1. Careful Selection of Raw Materials

Respecting the environment in every step of production is our priority. Therefore, our natural hardwood floor is manufactured by following the strictest environmental standards. Our raw materials, like wood, are selected and chosen by experts in ethical and efficient management of forests.

2. Certified Factory

At RIVA Spain, all natural wood floors are manufactured by an FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified factory, an international, non-governmental organization dedicated to promoting responsible management of the world's forests. Its certification system enables businesses and consumers to choose wood, paper and other forest products made with materials that support responsible forestry.

3. Reforestation Responsability

Planting trees promotes a greener future and makes a positive impact on our planet. For this reason we have a partnership with One Tree Planted, a non-profit organization that contributes towards reforestation efforts around the world. We plant 3 trees for each one we harvest.

4. Clean Products

Using non-toxic materials contributes to a healthier living. For that reason, look for hardwood floors that are VOC free, without volatile organic compounds, which are chemicals that can vaporize into the air and potentially pose health risks. By having VOC-free RIVA Spain materials in your design project, you are reducing indoor air pollution and promoting a safe living environment.
