Britain, we are among the largest consumers of industrial wood and paper in the
world. We import wood and its products from over 100 countries and only produce
15% of our own timber. We use 30 times the amount of the average person in
India. Thus our lifestyle here plays a significant part in the destruction of
the world’s forests.
tackle this problem, we need to REDUCE, REUSE AND RECYCLE!
|Only use as much wood as it necessary.|
|Look into the possibility of sourcing reclaimed timber. To find out more about reclaimed timber - www.salvo.co.uk|
|Source materials that are certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (If you see the FSC logo on timber, it means that the wood has come from well-managed sources and that consumers can buy it in the knowledge that they are not contributing to global forest loss).
