Let's "care" for loved ones

Wood products are relatively light and durable, and are often used in toys and cutlery used by children. In addition, the beauty of nature and the warmth that cannot be felt with other materials are also merits of incorporating wood products into our daily lives.

"Wood education" is a familiar and easy-to-incorporate education that allows you to gain a rich sensibility and a broad perspective by nurturing the steps of "touching," "creating," and "knowing" each of early childhood, boyhood, and adolescence through wooden products. It is one.

All the products sold at HAND in HAND are made from domestic thinned wood or environmentally friendly wood, but unlike imported wood, domestic thinned wood is a tree that was born and raised in Japan, so Japan has four seasons. In addition to being suitable for the climate of Japan, imported timber may contain extra materials such as preservatives used for transportation, but domestic timber does not have such a lot, which is also healthy. It will be a big advantage for the surface.

Living with trees plays a big role as an important action to care for yourself and your loved ones.

Let's use "trees" for everyone

All products in HAND in HAND are made from domestic thinned wood.

When older trees grow larger than necessary and grow in the forest, they do not get enough sunlight for the young trees to grow, and they become thin and bend. It goes without saying that the yield will be poor and the value of wood will decline, but in the long run, the absorption rate of carbon dioxide will decline, and it will no longer be able to play the role of a forest necessary for maintaining the ecosystem. In addition, such undergrown trees have insufficient rooting, causing sediment-related disasters and deterioration of rainwater filtration function.

Therefore, it is necessary to prun and thin the grown trees.

And, of course, we humans are required to make full use of the thinned trees.

Using thinned trees is synonymous with retaining carbon-accumulating trees without discharging them.

Utilization of thinned wood is one of the very big actions to reduce carbon dioxide emissions, which has become a problem in recent years from the two aspects of activating the function of the forest and retaining the carbon already absorbed by the forest. ..

Let's take care of nature

Japan is the world's third-largest forest power, but in the background there is a large amount of cedar and hinoki cypress, which is a high-class timber, planted by the postwar national policy. However, due to the cheap imported timber that was lifted from around 1960, many of our environmentally friendly domestic timber is not utilized, and as a result, more than 60% of the forests are left unattended. In addition to the high cost of such forest conservation activities, the number of Japanese forestry workers has decreased significantly due to the background mentioned above, and the current situation is that few volunteers are active. However, it has not reached the point where it can be maintained in the vast abandoned forest.

Despite the abundance of Japanese forests, the problem is that they are old and left unattended, while overseas forests, especially in Central Asia, Africa and South America, illegal logging, plant construction and non-traditional It is rapidly decreasing due to the traditional burning fields and the outbreak of fires due to climate change.

From this point of view, utilizing Japanese domestic timber will lead to one action to stop the decrease of forests overseas.
