As the years go by, more discussion for green job growth continues.
Our Government leans towards a more “green tech” and “green economy” for our people, and we’d have to agree.
We started posting some facts on Twitter about the sustainable wood we use from around our region in New England, Pennsylvania, and New York.
I figured we needed more than a 140 characters, which is all Twitter allows at a time to explain our stand behind sustainable, green practices in wood manufacturing.
Manchester Wood uses only natural hardwood. The hardwoods of the oak, ash, and maple tree primarily.
Why do we use hardwood?
It is not only a great natural resource where we live, but it’s biodegradable and renewable; the tree naturally re-seeds, growing by the multitude.
Here are a few facts we pointed out on our Twitter Account:
-US hardwood is in excess of 10,000 million cubic meters, growing at rate of 40 million cubic meters per year after harvest.
-Trees produce oxygen, destroying carbon dioxide and store carbon, thus they reduce greenhouse gases. Once cut and made into a product, the carbon is captured.
-US Hardwood is sustainable, biodegradable, and renewable.
Choosing to purchase from our small hardwood furniture company gives you the assurance that the trees were harvested responsibly.
