Carbon-friendly sofas from Wawa

Carbon-friendly sofas from Wawa

The use of frames made from sustainable European hardwoods and fabrics such as 100% natural wool tweed made on the Isle of Bute is not the only green claim to fame made by Wawa, the London firm that hand-makes a range of 22 sofas, chaise-longues, settees and armchairs designed by sculptor and film industry worker Richard Ward.

The business logistics are designed to reduce the company's carbon footprint, with workshops within 30 minutes of 61% of customers and deliveries made in evenings and weekends to reduce congestion and pollution. Where longer distances are involved, Wawa uses a company that recycles cooking oil to drive its fleet of lorries.

Last but not least, Wawa reuses its protective covers to reduce packaging waste.
