Wood Users - Individuals  

Consumers vote with their wallets each time they make a purchase. By practicing the 3 R's -- reduce, reuse and recycle -- and by buying recycled and other alternatives, individuals can decrease their consumption of new resources. Without impacting quality of life, these efforts greatly ease the pressure on the world's forests.
