We save THE TREE – SAVE THE FOREST by using Reclaimed Wood
More than 30% of the world’s land surface is covered in forests, which are home to 300 million people and over 80% of the world’s known land species. Every year, we have cleared over 800 yards of forests every 10 seconds. That adds up to 32 million acres per year, resulting in people and animals losing their homes. In light of this deforestation crisis, we can turn to reclaimed wood. Though reclaimed wood doesn’t solve all the issues, reclaimed wood could save forests!
Trees are cut down to be turned into homes, wine casks, pallets, shipping crates, barns, sheds and much more. Imagine how many trees and forests we could save if we repurposed old materials such as reclaimed wood. Reclaimed wood like most know has a very rustic and washed out look that makes it very popular for designing purposes. By reusing reclaimed wood, we help to save a lot of forests over the years and decrease the effects of pollution by cutting out the process of milling raw wood.
The use of the material other than raw wood as increased by 21 percent over the past few years and is expected to increase by 45 percent by 2030. If you are wanting to make a difference when it comes to protecting our forests, consider using reclaimed wood as much as you possibly can. There are additional ways to prevent deforestation along with using reclaimed wood. We are hoping to see a difference within the next few years as the reclaimed wood trend continues to grow.
Reclaimed wood can be used for flooring, paneling, shiplap, doors, framing, DIY projects, and much more in your home. At Trendworld Furniture, we are mainly producing indoor furniture by using reclaimed wood; this means we are making our mark on saving our forests as well as helping many creatures not to lose their natural habitats.
