Plywood can be a sustainable building material. But that’s only if it is produced, transported and used in safe and sustainable ways. So when you source plywood for your project, a question to always ask is: “How sustainable is this plywood?”
In addition, you want to ask yourself, “How do I choose and use plywood in a way that makes it more sustainable?”
To answer both questions, you need to first know plywood’s environmental impact during the main stages of its life cycle, from start to finish.
