The original motivation behind founding WOOD JUNKIES was a love of food! Food cooked outside, on a real fire, using the best fuel you will find anywhere on the planet.
Wood Junkies are committed to ensuring that each and every product we provide is Sustainably and Ethically sourced. Our Namibian Kameeldoring is gathered only from desolate trees and branches which have fallen naturally and dried in the African sun. Sekelbos is classed as an invasive alien species and is therefore harvested as part of the Bush Encroachment Control Scheme. All of our Namibian Hardwood is sourced from farms approved by the Ministry of Agriculture, Water and Forestry, and regular inspections take place to record the number of dead and living trees.
The export of Sustainably Sourced wood from Namibia creates thousands of jobs for local farmers, supporting the local economy and helping to lift people out of poverty. Wood Junkies also work to offset the carbon emissions generated by shipping wood from Namibia via our partnership with Ecologi.
Wood Junkies are registered with the UK Forestry Commission. This ensures that all imported wood products are inspected by the correct authorities on arrival in the UK.
