Bunnings, Australia’s largest hardware chain and retailer of public native forest products, has brought forward its decision to end the sale of Vicforest products by 6 months.
Back in May the Federal Court ruled that Vicforests was in breach of Australia’s environmental laws. It’s not the first time Vicforests has been in court, so Bunnings has decided enough is enough!
The first domino in the marketplace has fallen. The pressure will now mount in the marketplace for other businesses to follow Bunnings example.
The end of WELFARE FORESTRY in Australia is in sight.
Wesfarmers/Bunnings/Officeworks policy is to only sell FSC certified timber products come the 1st January 2021:
Now Vicforests, then Sustainable Timbers Tasmania will no longer enjoy Bunnings support come December.
Bunnings are to be congratulated on having a social conscience and sticking to it!
Made my day!!
