It's not only a key business strategy but a necessary one. As a business that depends on natural and limited resources, we are keenly aware of the delicate balance our industry must maintain in order to keep up with market demand while having minimal impact on the planet. In response to this growing concern, we have installed a massive, 360-panel 337kW solar farm that enables us to run our operations on 100% solar power. (See the details below.) And this is just the beginning of our commitment to sustainability.
Making our operations sustainable was an incredible accomplishment. Now on to delivering sustainable products. The first step to achieving this goal was to tackle the issue at the source. That is why, whenever possible, Western Woods purchases wood from tree farms that adopt sustainable harvesting practices. These practices support local biodiversity, sustain trees with the highest potential, and offer an environment that encourages rapid, healthy seedling growth. (Click here to learn more.
