A Sustainable Material Strategy.

The Green Tax is a potential strategy that negates any difference in cost between Certified Green Materials and more readily available non-sustainable Materials. The Green Tax is added to the Non-Green Product to increase the price to the level of the Green Product. The Green Tax would then be donated to an organization that has a direct interest in the material involved in the product.

For example, the Green Tax from a product made from Russian Plywood might be donated to a Russian Forest Conservation Group. Erik Newman is in the initial stages of research that will allow implementation of this strategy. The graphs that accompany the product descriptions are a qualitative representation and are subject to revision as information is acquired.
