We were thrilled to be recognized with an Environmental Excellence Award from Asheville GreenWorks at its board meeting on March 27.
Lang accepted the award from Asheville Greenworks board member Louise Baker (pictured), which recognized Appalachian Designs “for reclaiming urban wood and turning it into beautifully designed pieces.”
We appreciate this wonderful recognition and its support of our committment to creating awareness in the southern Appalachians for the use of local forest products. As emphasized in our Root Cause initiative, if you understand the importance of buying locally grown food, spread that thinking to our forests, and your furnishings. Buying local keeps money in Western North Carolina and is the truest way to create and sustain jobs for an improved, more sustainable economy. In a region that is the birthplace of Forest Conservation in the United States, Root Cause seeks to continue WNC’s historic commitment to modern forestry.
