Looking to add on that room or build a deck without contributing to
clearcutting, habitat loss, soil erosion and stream destruction? The Forest
Stewardship Council, an independent, non profit, non governmental organization
founded in part by the Sierra Club, is working to see that you can ask for
eco-friendly timber by name and quickly recognize its distinctive label.
the FSC has advocated for a global certification program for timber products to
support environmentally appropriate, socially beneficial and economically viable
management of the world's forests -- and to counter big industry efforts to
confuse consumers with pale green claims.
