This sustainable mango wood lamp is a humble beauty. It is a solid piece with a natural flex and cable switch for easy access.
Measuring approximately 52cm tall and 15cm wide it works beautifully as a bedside table lamp or on a side table as a reading lamp.
We recommend a 35cm lampshade (as shown in the photo) however a 30cm or 40cm will also work beautifully on this sustainable mango wood lamp depending on the space.
Lampshades are shown for styling purposes only and are not included in the price. Check out our handmade lampshade range for a selection of shades that we think work beautifully with this natural lamp.
Requires E27 40 Watts Bulb
Did you know:
The Mango trees are initially grown for their fruit and harvested over a number of years. Once the trees have stopped bearing fruit, they can be cut down and used to make wooden pieces including this wooden lamp. This allows farmers to plant more trees and provides them with a supplementary income. No waste.
What to learn more about Environmental sustainability:
According to the United Nations (UN) World Commission on Environment and Development, environmental sustainability is about acting in a way that ensures future generations have the natural resources available to live an equal, if not better, way of life as current generations.
While it may not be universally accepted, the UN’s definition is pretty standard and has been expanded over the years to include perspectives on human needs and well-being, including non-economic variables, such as education and health, clean air and water, and the protection of natural beauty.
- Alternate definition: Environmental sustainability is the capacity to improve the quality of human life while living within the carrying capacity of the earth’s supporting ecosystems.
- Alternate definition: Environmental sustainability is about stabilizing the currently disruptive relationship between earth’s two most complex systems: human culture and the living world.
The first alternate definition comes from the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), the work of which is driven by the fact that global production and consumption patterns are destroying nature at persistent and dangerously high rates.2
As populations have increased and we have relied on the Earth’s natural resources—such as minerals, petroleum, coal, gas, and more—the Earth’s biodiversity and creatures, from birds to insects to mammals, have declined in number.
The second alternate definition was provided by environmentalist Paul Hawken, who has written about the realization (and the science behind it) that we are using and destroying the earth’s resources faster than they can be regenerated and replenished.
