A staggering number of products can be traced back to plantation forestry. There are the usual suspects – toilet rolls, packaging, pencils and furniture – that we take for granted, but could not live without. Then, there are the every day essentials – lipstick, cream, sweetener, paint, washing powder, yoghurt, cleaning products and clothing – that one would never have guessed contained wood. Finally, there are the products of the future – biodegradable plastics, folding phones, fuels of the future – that can help us address the challenges of tomorrow.
