Environmental Actions and Consequences

In the past, wood was the primary building material because it was strong, relatively inexpensive, and abundant material. Nowadays, we deal daily with deforestation which causes environmental destruction, soil degradation, species displacement, and even extinction in some cases. Buying reclaimed wood furniture prevents the harvest and related damage of acquiring new materials that could have been used instead. It’s paramount to preserve our natural resources and lessen the burden on our landfills.
