Choosing Green- Wood Doors

Wood doors are beautiful, exquisite, and unique.  They remain the top choice for most residential spaces, and are often used within the interior of commercial offices and businesses.  All wood doors are not created the same, especially when it comes to the manner in which the wood is harvested.  ETO Doors is proud to offer a multitude of green options for your home or office front door, but whether you find your doors online at www.etodoors.com or you go local, here are a few things to check if you want a “green” door.

1. FSC Certification.  The FSC or Forest Stewardship Council’s mission is to provide sound, socially beneficial and economically prosperous management of the world’s forests. In short, the FSC ensures the harvesting of wood used for doors (and other wood products) is done in a way that encourages regrowth and development in the harvesting area.  ETO Doors is proud to carry FSC® certified wood door products in a variety of sizes/dimensions.

2. Actual Warehouse Environment.  Consider where the doors are stored; businesses should uses efficient lighting, heating and storage means to decrease energy usage. ETO Doors is proud to own buildings with solar panels on the roof, providing a significant reduction in the amount of energy required to run its businesses.

3. Carbon Footprint.  The Carbon Footprint is defined as the amount of CO2, and other carbon compounds and greenhouse gases emitted due to the consumption of fossil fuels during an activity (see Merriam-webster.com).  ETO Doors is proud to offer US-grown wood options through American vendors who source their wood from the mid and northwest regions of the country.  When you select a door that is not only American-made, but also American-grown, you’re deceasing the total amount of energy used in the production of that door and thus, the total amount of fossil fuels consumed.

Environmental awareness is a key consideration in the ETO Doors manufacturing process.  The combination of solar panels, FSC® certified wood, and US grown wood options means you can be assured a green wood door option is available at www.etodoors.com.  If you want to learn more about the ETO Doors green initiative call 888 DOORS ETO and speak with a team member or visit http://www.etodoors.com/eto-green.
