Timb and e flite have teamed up to create a new timber product that will help protect the fragile forests of eastern Washington, including the Evergreen State.
Timb and the e flites team will use a patented material called “Slim-Tite,” a natural carbon-absorbing material that is not a synthetic timber product but a natural organic material.
Timber, the company says, will be the first natural carbon replacement that can be used in the timber industry.
“Our goal is to create the best natural timber product on the market,” Timb co-founder and CEO David E. Goss said in a statement.
Timbs natural carbon content is higher than other natural wood products because it is a natural mineral called tannin, and that material absorbs carbon dioxide and water.
Timbs carbon content will also be a significant contributor to the forest’s health, according to Timb.
“It’s important to note that our timber products will also reduce carbon emissions in our environment and the soil, reducing our footprint,” Goss added.
Timbors carbon-neutral product is made from a variety of natural trees that will be grown in the United States and exported to the European Union, which also has been known to produce carbon-intensive products.
Timbos carbon-free product is also made from trees grown in China.
The company said its carbon-based product will not pollute the environment and will be environmentally friendly.
Timbor will be made available to retailers through a Kickstarter campaign that launched Monday, and it will go on sale on the company’s website starting in June.
Timbis carbon-capture system will be used to cut down trees, which is a process that is known to pollute waterways.
Timob’s carbon-negative timber product will be sold in bulk and will not be shipped.
The product will have a shelf life of between 10 and 20 years, and Timb expects the product to be available to the general public in the second half of 2020.
Timbo says its carbon neutral product will also help to preserve forest biodiversity and will also make timber products more environmentally friendly by reducing their use of heavy metals and pesticides.
Timbits carbon- neutral product is a product made from wood and will last 10 to 20 years.
Timbos carbon negative timber product is sold in bundles of 30, 40, or 60 trees.
