WHY DO WE USE BIRCH PLYWOOD?
Applywood products are all natural! Birch plywood is a versatile, real-wood, quality material and we love its beautiful natural grain and smooth texture. Because it's real wood, it's durable, solid, and long lasting and doesn't splinter easily.
Good for the Environment.
Birch Plywood is an eco-friendly, renewable material and our plywood is sourced from sustainable and legally managed forests.
We know the importance of caring for the environment and we choose to source our materials responsibly.
HERE'S WHY WOOD IS GOOD:
• Wood is a renewable and recyclable material.
• The manufacturing of wood products is often more energy efficient than that of alternative materials and most of the energy used in this process is bio-energy, generated from by-products of harvesting and production, such as bark, chips and sawdust.
• Using wood products allays climate change; Growing forests function as carbon sinks and wood products act as carbon dioxide stores.
• Most wood products are strong, durable and economical and have a long service life; At the end of their life-cycle they can be used to generate bio-energy.
• The burning of wood releases the same amount of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere as wood decomposing on the forest floor.
