OUR MISSION — PROTECTING THE RAINFORESTS OF ECUADOR
- Whole Forest creates a powerful incentive for locals near the Chocó Forest to conserve their forest by raising the value of the entire ecosystem.
- Whole Forest's products are completely one-of-a-kind — the colors you see in photographs will vary.
- Based on the financial return to the forest, we can quantify the tons of carbon a purchase has helped us preserve in the forest.
- The wood we harvest from the forest intrinsically represents the carbon value of the forest that's been able to remain intact.
- By transferring these carbon benefits to you, our products can largely reduce your carbon footprint and can lower the embodied energy of your project.
WE'LL WORK WITH YOU TO FIND THE PERFECT PRODUCT —
WHETHER YOU'RE LOOKING FOR CUSTOM FLOORING, COUNTERTOPS, TABLES, OR MORE, WE CAN HELP YOU FIND A SOLUTION

OUR CARBON OFFSET MODEL
Whole Forest's carbon offering is based on our collective effort to conserve Ecuador's rainforest. By sourcing Whole Forest products, a green construction project can offset a large part of the embodied energy in both new buildings and in renovation projects. We believe that having consideration for our product's entire life-cycle is imperative in the quest for keeping a livable climate. We also believe the best way to solve "wicked problems" is through dialogue. Contact us if you have any questions, or you'd like to have a conversation about this topic.
