Rapidly Renewable Resources
Easily renewable resources are also a good choice for design. Bamboo and cork both grow rapidly and replenish themselves much faster than traditional materials. Wood is also a renewable resource when it is grown in an environmentally and socially responsible way. The Forest Stewardship Council certifies forest managers who adopt these practices and products that use these materials can use the FSC seal. Searle Chemistry Laboratories used FSC certified wood in construction throughout the building.
