Can I Get That in Forest Green?

Tired of the clear-cut lumber you get at Home Depot and Lowe's? The Canadian Eco-Lumber Co-op lets you feel good about your wood. "The Eco-Lumber Co-op is about offering choice," explains executive director Cam Brewer, who co-founded the project. "We support forest managers who practice ecoforestry, architects and developers who choose sustainable materials, and consumers who buy eco-certified wood products. Together, these choices add up to a sustainable future for all of us."

Products available from the Eco-Lumber Co-op are made from wood that is either certified as being harvested in an ecologically sustainable manner by the Forest Stewardship Council or that has been reclaimed from demolished buildings.
