At Castle and Cubby, we are committed to utilising sustainable and innovative practices throughout our entire business. We are also passionate about promoting and educating our audience on adopting eco-conscious practices in their own spaces. We are always open to discussion, feedback and ideas on how we can improve our business and product to better serve our customers and the planet.
Our products are built using untreated radiata pine, cypress pine or hardwood. For custom work that specifies the use of in ground timbers, we use cypress pine and hardwood timbers that are naturally moisture and mite resistant. Castle and Cubby DO NOT USE ANY timbers treated in the following ways: CCA, LOSP, ACQ or AC. Our products contain no preservatives and no chemicals. Just the way we like our world! We ONLY source our new timbers, including hardwood timber, from FSC certified suppliers. FSC is an internationally recognised forest certification network that provides recognition of regional and national standards ensuring they meet their criteria for sustainable forest management. Our recycled apple crate accessories are built using recycled timber apple crates that have been sourced from one of the largest apple growing businesses in Victoria. These timbers are completely untreated to comply with food safety standards.
To ensure longevity of our products we provide a care and maintenance guide which outlines the best and most natural ways to ensure your timber products stand the test of time.
