As the world leader in infrared light, we know that our corporate responsibility for what we create and how it impacts the planet means we must choose our partners with great care. Because our saunas are made mostly of wood, sustainably managed wood sourcing is of utmost importance to us.

Snowbelt Hardwoods provides us with the quality basswood we use in many of our saunas. Watch as they help us understand how they use natural regeneration to manage the harvest and regrowth process. You’ll also learn the amazing quality of hardwoods to hold and store carbon long after a tree is cut down and used in manufacturing of furniture, cabinets and yes, Sunlighten saunas.

We are proud of the cooperative efforts our partners take to leave the forest healthy and thriving for the next generation.
