The correct answer to this question is true. As the environmental crisis grows, so does the research on steps that can be taken to help keep our home clean and alive. Recent studies have shown that wood products have a low environmental impact, compared to those alternatives.

These alternatives include the steel, plastic, and aluminum mentioned in the statement. Wood products cost less to process than cement and metal. Many things are made of wood, including tables, desks, and pencils. Even household products that we would never imagine include wood, like towels, toothpaste, makeup, medicine, wipes, paints, and nail polish.

True (t)-true. well-documented environmental life cycle inventories of various raw materials production processes conducted by research organizations around the world show that wood products can be manufactured with relatively little environmental impact compared to potential alternatives. even when wood products are compared to cement-based and recycled metal products, energy consumption and associated environmental impacts associated with wood-based materials manufacture are generally substantially lower.
