Sustainable Forest Management

A coalition of environmental groups runs the "Don't Buy SFI" campaign, which demands that the timber industry stop labeling its own products under the "Sustainable Forestry Initiative." The groups regard this program as greenwashing and an attempt to compete with the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) Label. Visit the website to email the SFI's board chair and to join a program tracking SFI marketing in retail stores.

If you're remodeling or building a home, look for wood bearing the FSC logo to guarantee your lumber comes from a sustainably managed forest. Check out this website to find a certified wood retailer in your area:
