Make It Wood - Do Your World Some Good aims to encourage the increased use of responsibly sourced wood as a building material.
When sourced responsibly, wood can play a big part in helping tackle climate change. This is because wood is a low carbon option for building - when used in long-lived applications it stores carbon for the long-term, it is renewable and it has a lower embodied energy than many other building materials such as concrete, steel or plastics.
As such, using wood allows us to live a low carbon lifestyle.
Wood is unique among building materials because it is a natural carbon store - up to 50% of its dry weight is carbon. Responsibly sourced wood products store the carbon that the growing trees have removed from the air.
Make It Wood is proudly brought to you by Planet Ark in partnership with Forest and Wood Products Australia.
Planet Ark believes that what remains of our high conservation forests must be protected and treasured. As such, Planet Ark opposes the logging of high conservation value forest for wood products and clearance for plantations, as this will have negative impacts on biodiversity.
