I'm looking for someone who makes sustainable wooden garden benches in the UK (preferably from British wood and/or reused wood), do you have any suggestions? I recently started looking for one online and started discovering some worrying things about tanalised and treated wood processes, but even if I can avoid that I've realised that a lot of the wood used by large and small outdoor furniture businesses is imported from the other side of the world - often Indonesia (I'm in the UK).

Any tips/suggestions on where/how I can get one? I could look for a second hand one, but I would like to get the bench quite quickly and am not sure how straightforward the delivery aspect will be if I don't buy it from a company/business which is used to delivering furniture.

Many thanks

Get meta with me! What pursues us is our own obsessions! But not this tiny ad:
