What an eye-opener for the American consumer – the number of “life essential” products that rely on wood fiber! Tragic that it took a pandemic to broaden their horizons on what our industry knows as a matter of fact …
Forest products are crucial for:
- “Life Essential” Products - Wood chips are the fiber source for surgical masks/gowns, toilet tissue and other paper products, filters, sponges, even disinfecting wipes.
- Other commonly used products that are made from wood fiber: Bath towels, Toothpaste, Nail polish, Makeup, Medications, Paints, LCD screens, Ping-pong balls.
- Wooden Pallets - Each year, about 500 million wooden pallets are produced to move products/materials like food, medical supplies, etc.
- Railroad Ties - For every mile of railroad track that is installed, approximately 3000 railroad ties are needed.
