Accoya: sustainable wood
Can wood be sustainable? Yes! Accoya wood is. It's non toxic: protecting the environment from poisons in treatments leaching into the earth. It's recyclable, the manufacturing process adds nothing to the wood that does not already occur naturally within it. It's durability class 1, can't be more durable than that I guess. It's great for thermal insulation, saving energy. It's produced from abundantly available and fast-growing sources such as Radiata Pine, saving trees. Accoya wood is great! No wonder it's copywrited and awarded with a Cradle-2-Cradle gold-certificate (world's leading eco award).

Dutchies can enjoy this magic wood in Sneek, where the Dutch government used Accoya to build a traffic bridge. You can check out some more projects on the Accoya website.
