An estimated 18 million acres (7.3 million hectares) of forest are lost each year, according to the United Nations’ Food and Agriculture Organization.

We have clear cut about half of the worlds tropical forest.  The reality is the Earth loses 18.7 million acres of forest per year due to urbanization, the creation commercial items such as paper, furniture and homes, and to create room for agriculture and live stock farming.

How do we stop this??  Recycling wood reduces our deforestation rate. The recycling facility at Friendly Earth Environmental recycles all clean wood products that are unpainted, non-stained, free of nails and glue.  Once recycled, it can be turned into paper, hog fuel, compost, landscape mulch and raw material for new wood products.

Let’s make the world a better place, stop deforestation and recycle!
