You might want to include the Rain Forest Action Network's web site,
specifically their guide to "Green Sources of Construction Materials"
-- at the following URL:
(say THAT five times fast!).
The emphasis is on building construction (not furniture) but tropical
and rainforest woods are used a lot in furniture, so this is
nonetheless relevant. While not P2 per se, sourcing wood from more
sustainable places is consistent with the P2 message. And while a lot
of the RAN site is adversarial or confrontational in tone (hey, it's
an activist site -- that's what they're supposed to do!) this document
is quite helpful and specific in content.
Hope this helps.
