Multi-purpose material – use more wood!

Use more wood
This looks at why wood is a good material to use, using less energy to produce than manufactured products like concrete or steel, and therefore much lower carbon dioxide emissions. It has particular properties that make it a cheaper and sensible alternative to materials such as plastics, which require the burning/ processing of fossil fuels to extract the raw material and produce the usable product.
