Eco-Woodturning is the use of ecologically friendly wood in the crafting of wood-turned items.
Utilizing recycled logs helps me minimize the environmental impact of my work
Each unique numbered woodturning can be traced back to either a tree-recycling site or the actual street where I obtained the logs. We are a participant and licencee with the Province of Ontario's "Öntario Wood' program.
