Stacked up in the alley, stands a forest worth of trees in the form of pallets. Most products you purchase—such as groceries, clothes and paint—arrive at the store on pallets inside of a truck.
How do I go green?
Choose foods and products with less packaging, because less packaging means less weight and space in transit, equating to fewer pallets used.
Use old pallets to construct a compost bin, a table for the workshop, or a tree house for kids to play in. Keep your wood pile (or almost anything else) dry and off the wet ground by stacking it on a pallet.
Bring your pallets in to your local lumber recycling facility so they can process them in the greenest possible manner.
