As a Green Business, it is our mission to be environmentally
conscious and responsibly balance the delicate nature at business and our
environment. For our business to succeed we need to have wood for our products.
Addoco uses low grade wood to manufacture our products. We use wood from the
tree that cannot be manufactured into flooring, cabinets or other primary uses.
We ensure an outlet to sawmills to be able to use the whole log. Addoco
partners with the environment by utilizing wood products from “cradle to
Some of our criteria include solid waste reduction and the
recycling or reuse of materials. We do this by adhering to our strict
standards. Addoco has always worked to eliminate waste and to respect the
environment. Addoco has recycled cardboard, metal banding, band saw blades and
even nails and staples that are accumulated from our wood grinder. In our offices,
we recycle clean paper products, plastic and metal pop cans. When possible, we
order office supplies from toner to legal pads which are made out of recycled
Our wood suppliers are actively concerned with have
sustainable forests and utilize the best management practices when harvesting
or buying timber. Some are accredited by the Forest Stewardship Council. The
FSC is an independent organization established to promote responsible
management of the world’s forests and has offices throughout the world. They
have strict standards that wood suppliers must abide by. Other suppliers are
working with trained foresters who work with landowners to set up forestry
In addition to working with suppliers who help replenish our
forest, we make sure no wood is wasted and sent to landfills. We grind up any
extra wood for landscape mulch, boiler fuel or livestock bedding. In fact, many
local contractors come to us with their leftover wood instead of taking it to
the landfill. We accept clean scrap wood, crating and wood pallets to grind and
recycle. We also repair and recondition pallets.
