Climate change has become an increasing concern recently, causing individuals and businesses to look for ways to reduce their carbon footprint. One simple way to decrease your carbon footprint is through the use of hardwoods.

Hardwood lumber is a naturally renewable and sustainable material with a carbon footprint that’s 75% less than concrete or steel, making a huge difference in the sustainability of homes and businesses. Hardwood lumber is so sustainable that the excess hardwood scraps are easily recycled, contributing to its remarkable performance in categories measuring its environmental impact.

Our video assets below provide a fun way to learn more about the sustainability of hardwoods.
