Features & Benefits: Environmentally Responsible


Nature gives us the tools we need

Consider the environmental impacts of wood versus alternatives. Every time we use products produced from nonrenewable resources, we diminish the earth's ability to sustain us. Wood products are made from a resource that can be planted, harvested, and replanted. Patrick Moore, a cofounder of Greenpeace, underscores this fact in a March 2002 Los Angeles Times commentary. In Greens Don't See Forest for the Trees, Moore is critical of environmentalists who refuse to accept wood as a renewable and environmentally-friendly building material.

CHEMCO treats wood products with a safe and nontoxic fire-retardant formula that makes them fire resistant for the useful life of the product. CHEMCO maintains environmentally safe energy and water usage levels throughout the treatment process, and all chemicals used are recycled.
