Enviro-Mich message from "Frank Ambrose" <fambrose@bloomington.in.us>

National Day of Action for Old Growth Forests!
Saturday April 1, 2000

We're just a few weeks away from the National Day of Action against Home
Builders Centex Corporation and Home Improvement Retailer, 84 Lumber. On
Saturday, April 1st these corporations need to hear from YOU!

Recently, another Home Building Monolith, Kaufman and Broad agreed to not
use wood that comes from Endangered Forests such as our National Forests, or
the Rainforests. Our actions are making a HUGE difference. We now have the
opportunity to make two more leading corporations more responsible in their
purchasing processes. Students from Michigan, Indiana, Ohio and Illinois
have played a key role so far, so lets keep the good work up.

You can find out where Centex's nearest sprawling development is by going to

Or call them toll free:
Centex Homes     1-800-Centex1
(there are more phone numbers and fax numbers below for Centex)

84 Lumber stores near you can be found at:
(there are more phone numbers and fax numbers below for 84 Lumber)

 If neither of these companies are building near you, THE FORESTS STILL NEED
YOUR HELP ON APRIL 1! Consider doing a call-in, fax-in or letterwriting
table on campus, or in your community.
