One small reason why we should all learn to choose wood
One of the biggest threats to our children’s future is climate change caused by global warming.
There is no single, simple solution, but we’d like to tell you about the good wood can do and why all of us should, wherever possible, be using it.
Trees suck in carbon dioxide out of the air and lock it away, so forestry is a vital part of any strategy to slow global warming. When we use the wood, the carbon stays locked up and the replanted trees start the cycle again.
And, despite what you might believe, Europe’s stock of trees is actually growing, as we currently plant more than two trees for every one that we cut.
Not only is wood renewable, but it takes less energy to fell, transport and process than other building materials. And because it is a natural insulator, timber frame houses use less fuel to heat.
So, next time when you need new floor, replacement with window, a patio or a new kitchen, stop or just a moment, remember all those little reason for choosing wood.
