Social entrepreneur, ethical timber retailer
When Chris founded CERES Fair Food, Victoria’s largest online organic grocery, he never thought he would one day move into timber sales. But after being asked to help a group of farmers to sell their timber, Fair Wood was born. This sustainable timber social enterprise helps farmers get their trees to a local sawmiller and then sells sustainable decking, flooring, cladding and landscaping timbers to green builders and architects across Victoria. Chris’s aim is to help grow the Australian sustainable timber market and send a signal to farmers that putting aside land to plant trees is good for the farm and the environment.
