WFTH Celebrates America Recycles Day Nov. 15

Each year on November 15, millions of people across the United States take part in America Recycles Day, a day which was created to raise awareness about recycling and the purchasing of recycled products.

Here at WFTH our mission is to reclaim discarded trees from urban neighborhoods to create beautiful, high-quality wood products. Currently, most trees in the metro region are sent to landfills, shredded into landscape mulch, or burned. Wood from the Hood is changing that. By reclaiming wood from all over the Twin Cities, these trees are able to live on in the form of sustainable, handcrafted hardwood products.

We believe using reclaimed urban trees also strengthens communities. Whether it is a communal table at your local coffee shop, a center island in a new house or a picture frame that holds a family portrait, Wood from the Hood customers take pride in using local, sustainable products that have minimal impact on the environment.

See how we take a fallen or diseased tree thru the recycling process and create our finished product:
