From an environmental standpoint, compared to other materials wood produced in a sustainable manner is an extraordinarily friendly material. Over its full life cycle (cradle to grave), wood is estimated to release up to 47% less air pollution; up to 23% less solid waste and requires up to 57% less energy to manufacture than other materials. Other products for construction and furniture discharge as much as 4 times more water pollution and emit 34 – 81% more greenhouse gas.
