Here at noukk we want to create effective, sustainable, long-lasting furniture.
We intend to operate in a way that replenishes the natural resources we use, which we hope will contribute to the improvement of our natural environment for future generations.
Tree Planting Pledge
Thanks to our friends over at C Free we are able to plant 5 trees with every desk purchase, 3 trees with every bed tray purchase, and 1 tree with every laptop stand. Check out how many trees we've planted to date.
C Free currently facilitates the planting of carbon-sucking mangrove trees at Antsanitia Mangrove Site, Madagascar. Not only do mangrove forests sequester 4x as much carbon as typical rainforest, they stabilise local soil and help to reinstate invaluable ecosystems.
See how C Free can help you offset your carbon emissions.
Responsible material sourcing
Exclusively Birch Ply
Our products are made from 100% FSC certified birch ply; a recyclable material that is produced from an abundant and fast-growing species of tree native to northern Europe.
To gain the FSC accreditation, suppliers are required to meet rigorous forest management standards that guarantee that their timber is harvested in a sustainable and responsible manner.
The exclusive use of sustainable birch ply means we can confidently say that our desk is also 100% sustainable.
Fewer Components, Less Waste
By only using birch ply, we can avoid the use of harmful lacquers and plastic-composites that can be found on other retailers’ furniture – these materials release toxic compounds into the environment during production and are impossible to recycle.
Our unique slotting-method means we don’t have to manufacture screws or other components, which helps to lower the total emissions of our product.
You might notice that we don't send out instructions with our desks, only an electronic link to our instructional video. This helps to ensure that we stay 100% paperless as a company.
Manufacturing and Packaging
In order to effectively improve a products' sustainability, the processes involved from cradle-to-grave must be considered. That's why we are selective about who we work with:
S Lester Packaging supplies us with FSC certified boxing that is made from over 80% recycled materials and is 100% recyclable. Likewise our manufacturer, Cut-Online provides us with FSC certified timber, and is striving to be 100% powered by renewable energy.
In addition, both companies are based in England, so post-manufacture transport distances are kept to a minimum.
