Woodstar Products, proud member of the Aldo Leopold Foundation, has been practicing the philosophy of "waste not, want not" since our inception in 1977. This credo is the essence of today's green movement. Woodstar Products is committed to continue the practice of using self-renewable building materials and re-using and recycling all of our off-fall and waste materials.
You'll hear a lot of claims these days about various "environmentally-friendly" building materials. But make no mistake ~ throughout the complete life cycle, from planting and harvesting to product manufacturing and then final disposal or recycling, nothing is more green than wood.
Building with wood has the smallest impact on the environment before, during and after construction, according to recent findings by the Canadian Wood council. Products constructed of wood reduce energy use, use fewer natural resources and decrease environmental impacts overall.
As the only self-renewable building material, wood does not need outside chemicals to regenerate and uses very little fossil fuels and natural resources to assemble it into a suitable building product," said Bert Jones, Southern Pine Council spokesperson. "Sustainable forest management practices ensure that the supply of wood is not only being replaced, but increased each time it is used."
