A Passion for Quality and Sustainability At Gemini Shavings, we’re not just passionate about delivering top-notch pine wood shavings for our clients, but also about ensuring a sustainable and eco-friendly approach to how we obtain and process them. Understanding our sourcing and processing methods can give you confidence in the quality and ethical standards we uphold.
Sourcing Our Pine Wood
1: Locally-Grown Pine Trees One of the core values at Gemini Shavings is to support our local economy and reduce our carbon footprint. This is why we predominantly source our pine wood from local farms and plantations. By doing so, we ensure a shorter supply chain, contributing to a smaller carbon footprint.
2: Ethical and Sustainable Forestry Practices Ensuring the sustainability of our sources is paramount. We collaborate with farms and plantations that adhere to sustainable forestry practices, ensuring that for every tree cut down, another is planted in its place. This guarantees a continuous supply of pine wood without negatively impacting our environment.
3: Quality Over Quantity At Gemini Shavings, we’re selective about the wood we source. Only the best quality pine wood, free from harmful chemicals and contaminants, is chosen. This ensures our shavings are safe, especially for uses that involve animals and sensitive environments.
Processing the Pine Wood
1: Advanced De-barking Procedure Once the wood reaches our facility, we begin the processing with our advanced de-barking procedure. This step ensures that all outer layers, which might contain contaminants or insects, are thoroughly removed.
2: Precision Shaving Technology With the bark removed, the pine wood is then processed through our state-of-the-art shaving machines. These machines are calibrated to produce shavings of consistent size and texture, making them perfect for a wide range of applications, from pet bedding to gardening.
3: Strict Quality Control After the shaving process, every batch goes through a strict quality control process. We inspect our shavings for consistency, ensuring they meet the high standards that Gemini Shavings is known for.
4: Natural Drying Process Before packaging, our shavings undergo a natural drying process. This not only reduces moisture content but also ensures that our pine wood shavings remain fresh and free from molds or bacteria.

Our commitment to quality, sustainability, and customer satisfaction is what sets us apart.
