How do I know if wood cutting boards come from responsibly managed forests?
Many companies that sell wood cutting boards claim the material used is from responsibly managed forests, but retailers and consumers only have their word for it. Simply stating that products come from responsibly managed forests is not enough. One of the best ways of ensuring a cutting board is from a responsible source is to look for FSC certification (Forest Stewardship Council).
Why is FSC certification important to the wood cutting board buying process?
FSC is a not-for-profit organization committed to the responsible management of forests. FSC audits certified producers annually based on their 10 principles of business that cover forest management, indigenous peoples rights, fair pay and support of local communities. Consumers want to make informed decisions, and certifications like this help them achieve this.
What makes Teak an ideal cutting board material?
Teak is a naturally oily tropical hardwood that has been used in shipbuilding and outdoor furniture for years. Teak’s durability, resistance to moisture and natural beauty make it an ideal, easy-to-care-for wood for use in kitchen cutting boards. Teak’s high oil content and hardwood grain also help keep knives sharp.
