Wood Reduction Trilogy — Overview
Modern life depends on a steady stream of wood-based products, from paper to packaging and building materials and fuel wood. Consuming ever-inceasing amounts of virgin wood has devastating consequences.
According to the World Resources Institute, 50 percent of the world’s forests have now disappeared. What is more alarming is that only 20 percent of those remaining forests are large enough to maintain their inherent biodiversity.
Can we meet human needs and still protect our forests?
Watershed Media’s Wood Reduction Trilogy offers a systems approach to wood consumption, making the most of what virgin materials we do consume, greatly expanding sustainable forestry practices, maximizing viable alternatives, and advocating for the protection of remaining old growth and intact forest systems.
