For MTI “Green” means environmental responsibility and sustainability. Accordingly, in both the administrative and manufacturing areas, MTI’s commitment is evidenced in the policies and practices it has in place.
MTI uses only 100% U.S.-certified legal, reclaimed, sustainable teak. A replacement tree is planted 20 years before a tree is harvested. The teak used in MTI products is imported from reputable suppliers bordering Burma (Myanmar); not from Burma. MTI suppliers observe all international laws regarding labor and conservation. All of the genuine teak used by MTI is harvested from reclaimed forests and is absolutely not endangering or depleting rain forests.
