Make It Wood

Make It Wood - Do Your World Some Good is Planet Ark’s campaign to encourage the increased use of responsibly sourced wood as a building material. When sourced responsibly, wood can play a big part in helping tackle climate change. Make It Wood details the benefits of wood and provides examples of how responsibly sourced wood has been used across the world as a building material and for everyday items.


Planet Ark's Environmental Edge

Planet Ark's Environmental Edge is a series of information-based TV advertisements designed to increase understanding among consumers of the environmental benefits of the featured products and services. A large body of research suggests that consumers are hungry for simple and accurate information to help them make better environmental choices but they're also skeptical about many 'green' claims.

Planet Ark verifies the claims of the featured products or services to ensure they are true, accurate and represent an environmental improvement over alternatives. Planet Ark is not necessarily endorsing the full company or its full range of actions, products or services.
