A Practical Approach To Sustainable Resources
People want products and people want to preserve the earth's natural resources and beauty. Everlasting Hardwoods harnesses economics to make both possible.
Everlasting Hardwoods creates the economic motivation for landowners and governments to manage their resources so they are sustainable and renewable indefinitely.
Everlasting Hardwoods creates this motivation by:
· Building the value of the beauty, durability and strength of Ipe with landscape architects, landscape contractors and homeowners.
· Ensuring that landowners and governments at the source receive the economic benefit of this growing value.
The economic benefit provides a strong incentive for landowners and governments to manage their resources for sustainability. This economic incentive is in addition to worldwide regulations and national laws.
Ipe is unique in its combination of beauty, durability and strength. With proper practices its source is sustainable indefinitely. It is all natural, contains no chemical preservatives, and is stronger and tougher than most decking and landscaping structure materials -- Southern Pine, Cedar, Douglas Fir, Meranti and Redwood. These qualities - combined with Everlasting Hardwoods careful selection, inventory, design recommendations, waste reduction practices and fastening system recommendations - mean wood can now be used successfully in outside applications by landscape architects, landscape contactors, commercial operators and homeowners. It also means that the beauty, durability and strength of Everlasting Hardwoods are utilized to create value that motivates governments and landowners to manage their resources for sustainability and environmental protection.
