Buying solid oak and pine furniture from this national retailer may boost your green credentials—PineSolutions.co.uk claims to be “the carbon-neutral online furniture shop” thanks to taking part in a certified carbon offsetting scheme. Founded in Norwich by Kevin Johnson in 2003 and specialising in furniture made from natural timber, the company claims to fill 2,000 orders a month and achieve speedy delivery due to its well-stocked warehouse. Tapping into the demand for oak furniture has helped sales rise 58% a year from £1.8m in 2005 to £7.2m in 2008.
