Eagle® is an environmentally-aware brand that's superiority in production is matched only by their commitment to the environment. Eagle® is “serious about protecting the environment. After all [they] take [their] company name from one of nature's most majestic creations.”
Wood windows are environmentally friendly according to the Window and Door Manufacturers Association (WDMA), wood materials are the "most environmentally friendly of the major materials used in today's building industry!”
Why? Wood is a completely renewable resource, and Eagle® uses engineered wood products in their windows when they can. What are engineered wood products? They are products made with timber harvested from managed forests, and the process involved in manufacturing creates less waste. Eagle® products use wood in an efficient way by featuring Laminated Veneer Lumber, meaning finger-jointed engineered lumber, which is reliable, high quality, and most importantly, renewable. Eagle® uses extensive recycling procedures that include recycling paint, solvent, scrap aluminum, office paper, and even sawdust. Using these recycled materials uses less energy than it takes to work with the virgin materials. Eagle® works in tandem with industry organizations to help protect our limited natural resources, and of course, maintain the majesty of our world.
