Anawalt Lumber is invested in improving the sustainability of the communities we serve and in stocking our stores with environmentally friendly alternatives whenever available. We’re proud of the progress we’ve made, and we’ll continue to look for ways to improve the programs at our stores.
Forests are a critical element of the global environment and we are concerned about the protection of that environment and recognize through the products that we sell, that we can play an important role in the future of global forests. We are committed to purchasing lumber from forest product companies that employ sustained yield harvesting plans and environmentally sound practices. Currently, there are two independent organizations that certify that these practices take effect, SFI (Sustainable Forestry Initiative) and FSC (FSC Forest Stewardship Council). The vast majority of the lumber we stock is certified by either one or both of these organizations.
We carry a full range of green alternatives including, but not limited to, cleaning supplies, organic gardening products, energy-efficient lighting, water-saving irrigation and accessories, and household goods.
