Timber from Rainforests
 terraces, garden furniture, window frames and even toilet seats.
It is important to know that terms such as “luxury wood”, “hardwood”, and “solid wood” are generally used to disguise mainly tropical timber from rainforest areas in Asia, Africa and Latin America.
This applies equally to costly mahogany, teak and rosewood and inexpensive types such as meranti, ramin and gabun.

Hard, durable tropical timber is generally cheaper than comparable-quality native timber because the rainforest trees were not planted, but simply plundered at virtually no cost to the loggers
Unfortunately, “sustainable” or “selective” logging in rainforests is a fiction
According to the European Commission, about one-fifth of EU timber imports are from illegal sources.
Scientific estimates of species loss vary widely, ranging from 50 to 500 species per day.

Deforestation is the permanent destruction of forests in order to make the land available for other uses
An estimated 7.3 million hectares of forest — are lost each year, according to the United Nations' Food and Agriculture Organization
