Environmental Impact Of Reclaimed Wood

Reclaimed wood is a great way to reduce your environmental impact! Using wood that has already been harvested can help reduce the demand for new wood, which can help reduce deforestation and the associated emissions of carbon dioxide. In addition, reclaimed wood typically uses fewer chemicals and finishes than new wood, which can help reduce air pollution and the potential for leaching into local waterways. Reclaimed wood often requires less energy to process, resulting in fewer greenhouse gas emissions. Finally, by reusing existing materials, we can help reduce the amount of waste in our landfills.
