Greenpeace is calling on Ethan Allen to stop buying timber that is illegally logged, to stop buying timber from endangered forests, and to commit to selling timber that is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC).
With your help, we are going to radically change the U.S. furniture industry once and for all -- ending their massive use of illegal and destructive wood from ancient tropical forests.

Join us for national days of action against the furniture industry April 14-16, 2002!
We're calling for a series of demonstrations targeting two U.S. companies, Stickley and Ethan Allen, April 14-16, 2002.
Stickley, a high-end furniture maker, is probably the largest single consumer, using about 4% of the U.S. import, of big-leaf mahogany from Brazil.
We're also targeting Ethan Allen. The mahogany they use, khaya, is mostly from Africa's ancient forests, much of which comes from illegal logging in Cote d'Ivoir and Ghana.
We are insisting that both of these companies to stop buying timber that is illegally logged, to stop buying timber from endangered forests, and to commit to selling timber that is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC).
We need Greenpeace supporters out there targeting the U.S. furniture industry!
The first step would be to find Ethan Allen stores and/or Stickley dealers in your area.
Go to http://www.ethanallen.com where all stores are listed by zip code.
Stickley has two corporate-run showrooms, one in Manhattan and one in Westchester. They sell through another 150 dealers across the country, so there's probably one somewhere near you.
For Stickley dealers in your area go to the Stickley website http://www.stickley.com click on "contact Stickley", click on "locate a Stickley dealer" then type in your address and email. They will send you an e-mail with your nearest dealer.
We will have "Day of Action" packets available soon - send us e-mail to receive stickers, t-shirts, videos, flyers, sample press releases, and more.
If you want to organize a demonstration for the Day of Action, receive a Day of Action packet, or just get more information, please contact:

Be sure to check the website in the next few weeks to see photos from the demonstrations!
