Sustainable Hardwoods

Dec-11-2010 By creatingyourspace


More and more, people who want to make environmentally responsible decisions can access good information on home products. Through national and international associations as well as supplier research, details on every step of a product’s development are increasingly available to consumers.

One research study on American hardwood has been started recently by PE International; a consulting company that specializes in helping organizations become more sustainable. The firm is investigating the environmental impact of every step in the process of hardwood products, from the initial harvesting to delivery at the importer’s yard.

Studies such as this are designed to enable both suppliers and customers to make informed decisions about the sustainability of the products they choose. In the long run, customers will drive a push to environmental responsibility with their dollars.

The best tool you have to change the world’s approach to the environment is how you choose to spend your money. If you demonstrate that environmental responsibility is important to you as a consumer, companies will listen and make appropriate changes.

    Terrific work! This is the type of information that should be shared around the web. Shame on the search engines for not positioning this post higher!
