No! Harvey Norman No!
We are very lucky to live in a rainforest, bounded by national park. We are definitely a tree hugging family! But we also are consumers, and do like to buy timber furniture.
When I read that a large retailer in Australia "Harvey Norman", is logging old growth forests, sending the timber to China for processing, then importing it to Australia to sell as furniture...grrrr...that really stinks!
The advocate group GetUp! produced an ad to show what Harvey Norman are up to, but the commercially run ad body in Australia banned the ad! So I am going to broadcast it here...pass it on. Let's look at the real costs of doing business with baddies.
Next time, use the Forest Stewardship Council to get you some sustainable timber, hey Harvey.
