To us, 'Reclaimed' embodies our sustainable mission: our commitment to sourcing eco-conscious materials, giving back to Maine's environment, and inspiring a love for the outdoors.

Sustainable wood harvesting happens on managed forest land where forest stewards minimize the impact on forests and the surrounding wildlife, watersheds, and communities. With sustainably-harvested wood, you can expect that more trees will be planted in place of the tree that was chopped down.
With our love for Maine and the environment, our hope is to help prevent deforestation by reusing wood instead of buying new. By preventing deforestation, we help sustain habitats, prevent soil erosion, and decrease expended energy to extract and process new materials. Less wood also ends up in land fills, which helps to reduce air and water pollution. Finally, CO2 remains stored in the our wood products, instead of being added to carbon emissions from fossil fuels.
