At Dunn Lumber we’re committed to the responsible stewardship of our environment and we pursue practices, products and partners in line with that vision. We are proud to be a part of the wood business and strongly believe that growing trees, harvesting them in a sustainable manner and sequestering the carbon in wood buildings is the most effective means currently available to reduce greenhouse gases. To learn more about sustainable harvesting, watch our video.
We are always looking for more ways to reduce, reuse and recycle. It’s simply responsible and good business. We are currently recycling, returning or composting all the typical household items plus coffee grounds, Styrofoam, fluorescent tubes, ballasts, toner cartridges, computer parts, wood scrap, steel banding, shed wraps, and gypsum blocks.
During the 1980s we switched to high-efficiency fluorescent lighting. All Dunn Lumber stores will be converted to 100 percent LED lighting by 2023.
We take sustainable harvesting very seriously and where we find origin to be in question we have chosen to not carry the product if a sustainable alternative can’t be found.
