Real American Hardwood Coalition launches consumer website

Home News Real American Hardwood Coalition launches consumer website

The Real American Hardwood Coalition (RAHC), a domestic, industry-wide promotion initiative for real American hardwood products, has launched a website at RealAmericanHardwood.com designed to inspire and educate consumers.

“The website takes visitors on a digital journey to learn how and why they should choose Real American Hardwood flooring, cabinetry, millwork, furniture and other goods for their homes,” said Michael Martin, president and CEO of the National Wood Flooring Association (NWFA), which is one of more than 30 local, state and national associations that have come together to form the RAHC. “Today’s consumers are overwhelmed with product choices and often believe they’re buying natural and renewable hardwood products when, in fact, they’re buying look-alikes such as vinyl and plastic that are manufactured from non-renewable resources. Now, the industry has an informative tool that’s setting the record straight and separating fact from fiction—backed by research and science.”

Designed by CANVAS United—a high-profile agency known for its extensive experience in promoting commodity and agricultural goods—the Real American Hardwood Coalition website educates consumers on the advantages and benefits of Real American Hardwood products in ways that make emotional connections. Interactive site modules engage consumers and compare the appearance, durability, value, home health and environmental attributes of real wood products to faux, wood-look alternatives. The site also serves as a hub for project inspiration, maintenance tips and environmental facts, and explores how hardwood is influencing lifestyles and culture in the modern world.

“Our industry has a rich history and compelling stories to tell,” said Dean Alanko, vice president of sales and marketing, Allegheny Wood Products. “The website spotlights the generational, family businesses that make up our industry. I’m proud of how the website tells these stories and presents information that can make a difference in consumers’ lives and benefit all industry stakeholders.”
