In 2008, the Unites States Congress amended its Lacey Act to include provisions to combat global trafficking of illegally harvested wood and products derived from wood from entering the United States wood products marketplace. Since the adoption of this bill, the European Union has passed similar legislation.
Our company works diligently with our suppliers to ensure that all wood products are properly documented and received legally. It is a matter of company policy to only source wood products legally and we require the same commitment from our wood suppliers.
It is through this cooperation with our suppliers that we can assure you that our products are U.S. Lacey Act Compliant. Metro Hardwoods is firmly committed to the trade of legal and responsibly sourced materials at all stages within our supply chain.
