The GoodWood Guide

Are you doing a little building or renovating? Have you considered what kind of wood you will use? Well you probably should considering every year around the world, seven million hectares of ancient forest are logged, cleared or severely degraded. That’s 20 soccer fields a minute!

Greenpeace aims to help you make an informed, environmentally responsible decision when buying wood and wood products. Only buy good wood by checking the online Good Wood Guide to Australian timber suppliers. Support the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), a scheme that ensures timber is from responsibly managed forests and plantations.
