Introducing Rowan Saker of Global Wood Rework
What do you do?
I recycle timber destined for the landfill into something useful. Global Wood Rework has a range of products (trestle tables, drying racks, benches, clothes racks) it makes on a regular basis; it also makes to commission – tables, chests of drawers, side boards, bed bases, wardrobes, desks – in fact anything anybody wants.
Why did you start your business?
I saw 10,000 tonnes of excellent wood being turned into the Southern Landfill every year. I still see this. It seems like a waste. There is kauri, matai, totara and other native woods being thrown away by the truckload.
Why is being Eco Friendly important to you?
I don’t want to be part of the problem.
What is your top Eco tip?
Start now for our sustainable future!
