Casa Bella is committed to being a responsible furniture retailer. By supplying furniture using only the finest, sustainably sourced materials, our products are built to stand the test of time.
Now, more than ever, we are all thinking more about preserving the planet that we live in. Ensuring that we have sustainable furniture in our home should be everyone’s priority.
Over 90% of the furniture ranges we supply are made from solid wood. Using solid wood timbers to produce furniture reduces the processing time, limiting the amount of energy consumed in the production process.
Purchasing furniture made from Mango wood is particularly beneficial for ensuring the longevity of your choices. Mango Wood is a hardwood from mango trees – evergreen trees that grow in a number of countries including India, Myanmar, and the Caribbean.
There are a number of benefits to mango wood, one of which being the sustainability of the natural material. Many types of hardwood trees take a long time to regenerate, which can be bad news from a sustainability standpoint. Mango trees are fast-growing and only take 15 years to reach maturity. As farmers plant new mango trees every 7 to 15 years, a sustainable plantation and harvest cycle is created.

Solid wood is easily repairable, so will last in your home for many years. Its recyclability is immense with its ability to be restored to a good as new quality with just a sand and application of a protective coat.
Our packaging contains only very few non-recyclable materials and we’re working hard to reduce this to zero.
Any furniture returned to us by customers that may have suffered damage in transit is repaired and re-sold in our clearance section. This ensures that no furniture goes to waste and always finds a home.
During the design process of our furniture, we always look to identify areas of each design that might contain unnecessary wood, thereby reducing the amount of material used in the production process. The quantity of material used in creating each product directly correlates to its environmental impact.
We also endeavour to use all pieces of wood, including offcuts, to ensure wastage is kept to a minimum.
We are committed to using suppliers/factories that protect sustainable forest management and their local communities. Below are the governing bodies that ensure this.
