Wood Furniture's Journey to Your Home Starts in a Forest
The wood furniture in your home began life in a forest. Sadly (catastrophically IMO) earth's forests are being destroyed at the rate of 1 football field every second. Your favorite animals are losing their homes. For example, Lions and tigers and bears are all endangered.
Forests are home to 80% of our planets terrestrial wildlife species. An acre of their habitat is being destroyed every second. You can help them by purchasing responsibly harvested forest products including sustainable furniture.
