About

Make It Wood - Do Your World Some Good aims to encourage the increased use of responsibly sourced wood as a building material. When sourced responsibly, wood can play a big part in helping tackle climate change. This is because wood is a low carbon option for building; it sequesters carbon during the growth phase, it stores carbon for the long-term, it is renewable and it has a lower embodied energy than many other building materials such as concrete, steel or plastics. As a result, using wood allows us to live a low carbon lifestyle.

Responsibly sourced wood is a great choice as a building material. Not only does it help tackle climate change due to its ability to store carbon and its low embodied energy, but it is a great thermal insulator, easy to use, durable, renewable and recyclable.
