WOOD IS A NATURAL, RECYCLABLE, AND RENEWABLE RESOURCE
Wood is a natural, recyclable and renewable resource. It grows without using artificial energy, and although it must be harvested and transported, the overall use of non-renewable energy is less than concrete or steel. Most of all, wood is a durable building material. With sensible protection from the elements, wood buildings have lasted centuries.
REDUCE AND REUSE
Cut-offs from our manufacturing process are recycled locally, and made available at no cost to people who use them for fuel and a variety of crafts and other projects. The sawdust from the process is provided to local farmers. Metal strapping and other materials are gathered and recycled. Our tools are cleaned with citrus-based cleaners that won't harm the environment, and most of our shops' trucks and forklifts are powered with biodiesel fuel.
