Located in Central Missouri, USA, Greener Lumber, LLC was formed in July of 2009 and, as of September 2010, works with a company in Belize to import many species of river salvaged timber into the US and make Greener Lumber brand “Sinker” woods available to consumers in North America and other regions of the world.
We have a devout commitment to the people and environment of Belize and hope to give end users of tropical species a viable alternative to cutting young timber. Hopefully this would allow rainforest areas in Belize to grow back to their once majestic stature and then be sustainably managed for future generations of woodworkers.
Greener Lumber has received some much appreciated exposure from a globally broadcast program called “Earthrise”. It is, in my opinion, one of the top environmental news programs on the planet. Unfortunately it’s not shown on many cable or satellite channels in the US but is well distributed over the rest of the globe. If you would like to see our smiling faces and see just how we are retrieving these nuggets of wooden gold.
