"Mimosa" – A mixing of orange juice and champagne which greatly improves the orange.
Ever had one? Anyone can enjoy fresh-squeezed orange juice, but only a few dare to add a tinge of champagne. Treat your project like the gem you know it is. Exotic wood floors, beautiful countertop options, and decking choices are just the beginning of what will make your orange go zoom... and they are available at Pacific American Lumber.
I am sure you are scratching your head at the spelling miscue appearing in the title. Rest assured that the wording is not a mistake but a calculated attempt to grab your attention in the hopes that you will read this short article and walk away with a better understanding of some of the community involvement that goes on at Pacific American Lumber.
As the state of Hawaii’s largest distributor of hardwood lumber and hardwood flooring we constantly find ourselves buried in left over material from the many projects we complete every month. The quandary we find ourselves in is what we should do with this wood. We live in Hawaii and we only have so much warehouse space but do we really want to send this material to the landfill?
Absolutely not!! Not only are we Hawaii’s largest distributor of hardwood flooring and lumber we were also the first flooring company in Hawaii to be certified by the Forestry Stewardship Council (fscus.org) which means we are committed to green building practices and sustainable forestry. Our solution was to turn this “trash” into “gold” by donating all the excess wood to some of the local high school wood shops. The results? Well the pictures below speak for themselves. Truly amazing designs combining mixed species show the wealth of youthful talent to be found across our state. Hope you enjoy the pictures as much as we did. Doing good with wood!!
