IKEA under fire for ancient tree logging


www.guardian.co.uk

The home furnishing giant Ikea, founded in Sweden in 1943, is facing heavy criticism for the logging and clear-cutting of old-growth forests in the north of Russian Karelia by its wholly owned subsidiary Swedwood.

According to leading environmental organisations, such logging is destroying ancient and unique forests that have a high conservation value.

Ikea promotes it's own always as a "wood or forest friendly" company... seems this is not true at all!
It's really sad to read this.
I really wonder if there will be large forests in the future.. It's like they cutting it all down.. nobody cares!
Future generations will look back and think, how did this happen.. Sadly, it will be too late then.

Wait, if they are clearing this forest, then where the hell is the wood in their products?

I thought it was two wood panels with a sawdust glue filler, I guess they wont need to cut down another forest for a while, just long enough for this stuff to fall over... ( pun intended )

Yeah, maybe they are selling most of the wood? I had a nice ikea bedroom set, it had to sit in our storage trailor while I fixed up my room. Only one dresser survived. The rest of the furnature soaked up moisture like crazy, warped, and got moldy. Presswood is known for that I guess.
