Recycling wood is a great way to keep wood products out of landfills, breathe new life into old items, and help reduce deforestation rates around the world. All of these things add up to big benefits for the planet. More importantly, they can help families feel better about their own building projects as they are doing their part to reduce, reuse, and recycle wood, a resource that is precious for this planet.

Sustainable Clothing Choices

Because the word sustainable means different things to different people, it can be difficult to pinpoint an exact definition of the term sustainable clothing. For some, it’s all about buying clothing from responsible companies that do not carry profit as their primary pursuits. For others, it’s about resisting the urge to buy new clothes and turning to used clothing items instead. Still others use some combination of the two in order to have a sustainable wardrobe on multiple fronts.

Green Hotels
