Acaciaware is responsibly forested with care. 'Responsibly forested' means that our wood is harvested in an environmentally friendly and sustainable manner. Here's what sustainable means:

• Harvesting rates and clearing sizes that do not exceed a forest's natural capacity to regenerate

• Maintaining natural forest conditions needed for wildlife and healthy ecosystems to function.

• Protecting and maintaining rare, threatened and endangered species and forest types.

• Not clearing forests or replacing them with barren tree plantations.

• Minimizing or eliminating chemical use.

• Protecting streams and rivers from soil erosion that degrades water quality and fish habitats.

• Helping workers, communities and indigenous people benefit from the forestry operations and protecting their rights and interests.

Tree Replanting

As part of our dedication to social responsibility, Pacific Merchants Trading has committed to planting trees in pursuit of sustainable development, conservation and the protection of our environment. Our goal is to make a positive impact on future generations and encourage others to follow our lead.

Acacia wood is resistant to decay because the tree deposits in the heartwood have many waste substances that are preservatives, which render the wood unpalatable to insects. This makes the wood dense and thus resistant to penetration by water and other agents of decay

Simply wash the item with warm soapy water and air dry. If your acacia wood charcuterie tray, appetizer serving tray ever appears dry, treat it with mineral oil and the grain will be restored to its original beautiful condition. Acaciaware can handle moderate heat but cannot withstand hot pans or baking dishes taken directly from the oven.  None of our serveware should be used as a trivet for hot pans or casseroles out from the oven. Acacia wood is not dishwasher or microwave safe.
