consume sustainably produced products
The materials used in products come from a resource base, and the way those resources are managed, conserved or protected is a major contributor to the overall sustainability profile of a product.
It is important to carefully consider the type of resource as the main sustainability issues can vary. For wood fiber recycling is important but the management of the trees, land and soils to ensure soil preservation, reforestation and habitat conservation are critical. Wood, however, is different from metals.
When you buy sustainable products, you support the manufacturers who make these products. A growing demand for sustainable products gives manufacturers new incentives to create and sell them.
Many manufacturers have made aggressive strides to reduce their carbon footprint, in all operations, throughout their supply chain. It begins with the raw materials that are scraped out of or harvested from the earth, to the preparation of the raw materials, the manufacturing processes, the packaging, use and ultimate disposal of the product, and it includes the transportation requirements throughout the lifecycle. The cumulative total of the impacts defines the product’s sustainability footprint.
By making small changes today, you are setting an example for them to follow and you are teaching others to become informed
We all need to start supporting sustainable products in order to protect our environment . Products which cannot be recycled are not only threat to environment but also to future we are making for the coming generations.
