Whoever cares about working sustainably with wood stops buying non-FSC wood, as a first step. FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) is an independent organization founded by NGOs such as WWF and Greenpeace that certifies wood that has been produced in a sustainable way. Wood without FSC label can come from regions where old growth forest is being clear cut illegaly, where indigenous populations are being removed from where they have been living for centuries and where rare species and natural ecosystems are being wiped out. This is especially true in the tropics, but also in European countries, Russia, North America and Australia.
