The difficulty when buying wood products is knowing whether they are ethical or not. We've bought a garden bench recently that we had made for us, ethical timber but we're not so sure about the garden shed from the same source. We're also looking at buying a wooden greenhouse (Western Red Cedar). If wood from illegally felled timber was not able to be imported that would make life much easier.
Greenpeace have a campaign click here to pressure for an import ban on illegal timber. Please write and support this important issue and help safeguard ancient forests across the world.
Nick, thanks for alerting me to this one.
