Choosing Sustainable Materials
This film clip looks at a sustainable system of timber production and woodland management. It is explained that sustainability is the way in which the environment is managed, not whether trees are felled or not. Clear felling uses excavating machines to clear large areas of woodland at a time as part of an ongoing cycle of felling and re-planting. It explained how designers can be sure that the wood they are using comes from a sustainably managed source, including what the Forest Stewardship Council logo means.
