Imagine how many great, climate-smart things can be made of wood!
The forest, its trees and wood are all amazing. Every tree is a part of nature’s cycle, where the growing tree captures carbon dioxide and releases oxygen at the same time. Products made of wood and other materials derived from the forest will then continue to store CO2 until they’re used for energy or decompose naturally. The CO2 then finds its way back to the atmosphere for new trees to absorb. In Sweden, where at least two new trees are planted for each one used, the forest is continuously expanding.
It’s no news that wood is used for beautiful furniture, flooring, packaging, cardboard, and paper. But did you know that skyscrapers, clothes, soft soap, and make-up could also be made from Swedish forests? Not to mention all the new innovations being developed, such as transparent wood, batteries, bulletproof vests... plenty of climate-smart solutions indeed.
