(Zirconia, NC) September 6, 2011 — Whole Log Lumber, reclaimed lumber dealer in Zirconia, North Carolina, recently supplied reclaimed wood for two new Whole Foods stores in Franklin, TN and North Raleigh, NC.

Towards accrual of qualifying points for LEEDS rating standards programs, both stores installed a specified portion of wood products that are authentically recycled, reclaimed and restored. The reclaimed wood which Whole Log supplied, originated from sources within 500 mile distances from the particular stores, which embodies the "Local Economic Empowerment Development " challenge. LEEDS stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design.

The reclaimed wood supplied by Whole Log Lumber was used to highlight focal areas around Bakery and Deli Departments, and in ceiling paneling and wall treatments throughout the stores.

Whole Foods Company will benefit from green building credits with this use of reclaimed wood, which their commitment to sustainability and environmental stewardship has attracted. Whole Foods customers are benefiting from the natural energy quotient and ambiance which reclaimed wood brings to almost any setting.

Whole Log Lumber sources the materials it uses from a wide network of deconstruction and recycling professionals from around the country. Whole Log Lumber provides both reclaimed and antique wood products.
