Examples of Eco - Friendly Materials
Traditional Hardwoods from Sustainable Manage Forests - although we are losing some of our forests to beetle plight and forest fires, we don't lose the wood from these trees. They are harvested in a sustainable manner and used in green building.
Bamboo - is a grass that matures in a few years and is harvest to produce wood products.
Lyptus - a premium grade, sustainable, renewable, high-yield hardwood grown on South American plantations interspersed with re-introduced indigenous trees to preserve native ecosystems. Lyptus wood is grown in a responsible style of forest management in Brazil. Lyptus trees grow quickly enabling forest management professionals to harvest trees in 15 years versus the 50 to 70 years required in colder regions. And Lyptus trees can be regenerated after being harvested, without the need for replanting or disturbing the forest floor.
Wheatboard (strawboard) - refers to a panel made primarily from compressed straw. Typically strawboard is made without formaldehyde binders.
