Lumber Plus Leading the Way for Earth Day and Beyond

Join us in our commitment to sustainable practices and learn how we're building a greener future.

As we celebrate Earth Day, it’s essential to recognize companies that prioritize environmental stewardship and sustainability. At Lumber Plus, we’re not just in the business of timber; we’re dedicated to ensuring that our practices contribute positively to the planet. From responsible sourcing to innovative environmental initiatives, here’s a deeper look into how Lumber Plus is leading the way for a greener future.

Commitment to Responsible Sourcing

One of the cornerstones of our sustainability efforts at Lumber Plus is our commitment to responsibly sourcing hardwoods. Our timber comes primarily from South America, where we hold our suppliers to the highest standards of environmental responsibility. This means ensuring that all our partners engage in responsible forest management practices that prioritize the long-term health of ecosystems and support the livelihoods of indigenous communities.

Stringent Sustainability Standards

At Lumber Plus, we believe that sustainability is non-negotiable. Every log that enters our facilities undergoes rigorous scrutiny to ensure that it meets our strict sustainability standards. We work closely with third-party verification companies such as Unifloresta and the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) to certify the legality and sustainability of our timber. By holding ourselves and our partners accountable, we’re ensuring that our operations have a minimal impact on the environment.

Innovation and Exploration of Eco-Friendly Options

In our pursuit of sustainability, we’ve expanded our offerings to include thermally modified wood sourced from plantation forests. By enhancing fast-growing trees using steam and heat alone, without the need for toxins or chemicals, we’re able to extend their lifespan and durability. This eco-friendly alternative not only diversifies our product range but also promotes the use of sustainable materials, contributing to a healthier planet. From decking to furniture, thermally modified wood offers versatile solutions while reducing our environmental footprint and inspiring others to follow suit.

Looking Ahead

As we reflect on Earth Day, it’s clear that sustainability isn’t just a one-time commitment; it’s a journey that requires ongoing dedication and innovation. At Lumber Plus, we’re excited about the progress we’ve made so far, but we’re even more excited about the possibilities that lie ahead. By continuing to prioritize environmental stewardship and sustainability, we’re not only ensuring a brighter future for our planet but also setting a precedent for others in the industry to follow.

On this Earth Day and every day, Lumber Plus remains steadfast in our commitment to sustainability. From responsible sourcing to innovative initiatives, we’re proud to lead the way toward a greener, more sustainable future.

Join us in celebrating Earth Day by choosing products and companies that prioritize the health of our planet. Together, we can make a difference.
