Is it more eco-friendly to use synthetic wood in designing homes?

    What you need to take into account is exactly how that synthetic wood is manufactured. Do they use harmful chemicals? Will the wood produce VOCs (volatile organic compounds) that can make the air in your home unhealthy to breathe? The good news is that you can still use real wood or wood alternatives if you cannot find a healthy synthetic wood. If you choose real wood, you can buy your wood from a sustainable forest. It’s easy to tell, as the wood will have the green FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) logo on it. You can also try other alternative woods such as bamboo and cork. Bamboo is strong, beautiful, and renewable because the plant grows so quickly. Check out the links for more information. Good Luck!
