The Amazonia Fires And Why You Need To Buy Protected-Source Wood Products

In the world we live in today sometimes businesses have more importance than ecology. This equation can take us to horrendous results that unfortunately, we're no strangers from. In this line of thinking, every time we buy a wooden product (whichever it is) we need to make sure it comes from a certified source.

Companies like Seventh Watches are making a difference using only wood from sources that are 100% certified and spreading the word of living a life with values, social and eco-consciousness. Read on find out how a simple fact like buying a watch can help you help the planet.

The Amazonia fire, a big business?

Unless you have been living inside a Tupperware for the last months, you are aware of the Amazonia fires that happened earlier this year. The devastating numbers next to a close-to-inactive government might not be a coincidence since big money can be made from the results of this catastrophe.

  • The lands are worth millions
    The lands on which the Amazonia is emplaced are worth millions of dollars due to the fertility and also the location. If someone was to use them for plantation of soy or some other agricultural endeavor, results would be a billionaire.

  • The wood at the disposal
    Once the site is cleared after the fires, all the ancient wood that has fallen as a result of the fires can be used for other applications. These fallen trees are sometimes hundreds of years old and untouchable for companies unless, of course, they are fallen.

While there are no proofs to say that the fire was intentional, many NGOs in Brazil and abroad are stating that the extent to which it got, could have been reduced or stopped. One of the reasons this wood from the catastrophe can be used as a business is because there are still clients not caring for certified wood.

What is certified wood?

Certified wood is wood that comes from a known source and has been planted specifically for it’s harvesting to manufacture goods. This means that this kind of wood does not belong to endangered species or ancient forests, but carefully planned plantations made by humans so that the consumption of wood can be maintained in a sustainable way. There are many elements that nowadays are still being made from wood but don’t have any impact on ecosystems such as forests or jungles. These ecosystems do not only suffer from a tree and oxygen point of view, but also from an animal point of view. Catastrophes like the Amazonian fires can be the end of endangered species for wrecking their habitats.

Choosing brands that care

Because of all the reasons given above and specifically avoidable forest fires, choosing brands that care for the environment and utilize only certified wood is a definite must. Without consumers buying their products, there is no way that a company using non-certified wood can continue doing business. This means that to disarm this equation that destroys native forests for the search of an increased profit, we have to start from the last link: the consumer.

Brands like Seventh Watches utilize certified wood to make luxurious hand-crafted timepieces that can replace those made with metal, which costs humankind a lot of money and contaminants to harvest. Besides, wooden watches are trendier and look better on those wearing them, making it clear to other people that they stand for something.

Social importance

All timepieces made by seventh Watches are relevant from an ecological point of view, but also from a social one since the company donates 10% of their profit to a relevant charity cause in the world. This contributes to freshwater, education, jobs and much more for those who need it. Buying a Seventh Watches timepiece you’ll be doing much more than helping the environment, you will also be helping those who need it the most.

Living with values

Each creation by Seventh Watches is named after an important value to live your life with. It is one of the brand’s cornerstones to make sure that its customers can look at the time at any given time and receive more than they are looking for. The meaning of every watch is designed to be something we need to live our lives fully, freely and fearlessly. For example, in a situation that requires the most out of us, we might be encouraged by the Seventh Kairos, a beautiful timepiece with a shiny reddish sandalwood strap and a minimalistic metal watch that is a call to action. Looking at this beautiful creation, you can be pushed forward to acting upon your dreams and achieving your highest goals.

You could, for example, be there for an important business meeting and look at your watch on your left wrist, be encouraged by this seventh creation and be bold enough to push your successful business strategy forward. This model is just an example because all the catalog of this brand is carefully curated to cover the most important values in people’s lives and helping customers become the successful men and women they desire to be.
