that make a difference.
Having made this commitment, these companies will display the Made Aware scheme label on their products, so that customers can see which companies and products are part of the scheme. LOFA will support members in these efforts by providing ideas and advice to help them identify and implement improvements. In its first full year of operation the Made Aware scheme has brought about the following improvements. Products made from, or involving, timber have been changed to use FSC accredited timber. This change has resulted in around 650 tonnes being changed annually. Production processes of aluminium and polyweave furniture have been finessed to reduce material wastage and increase levels of re-cycling. Material usage has been reduced by over 10 tonnes annually.
