TODAY IS INTERNATIONAL DAY OF FORESTS!
? Forests are home to about 80% of the world’s terrestrial biodiversity, with more than 60,000 tree species. It is also crucial in poverty alleviation yet despite all these priceless ecological, economic, social and health benefits, global deforestation still continues at an alarming rate.
Wood helps to provide bacteria-free food and water in many kitchens, build countless furniture and utensils, replace materials as harmful as plastic, create new fibers for our clothes and, through technology, be part of the fields of medicine or the space race.
It is vital to consume and produce wood in a more environmentally friendly way for the planet and its inhabitants. Let’s protect this easily renewable resource with sustainable management of forests.
