Thanks to visionary vice president Jack Mackin, Sterritt Lumber has long been a leader in the green building industry. Founded in 1841, this Watertown operation was the first retail lumberyard in New England to be certified by the Forest Stewardship Council. Since coming aboard, Mackin has made a point of educating homeowners, builders, and architects about the most planet-friendly building options, as well as supplying them. At Sterritt, eco-conscious flooring means more than bamboo; you'll also find responsibly sourced woods like American cherry and Spanish cedar. Plus, Sterritt carries plenty of formaldehyde-and-urea-free and low-VOC products, making it a one-stop resource for green building.
