Peace Pole Makers are concerned about the health and care of our environment. In researching viable materials for Peace Pole making, we found that wood is a renewable resource which is the least harmful to the environment. We use Canadian western red cedar which has a natural resistance to decay and insect attack. It is also unlikely to warp, split, crack, cup or check with age or exposure to the weather. We urge you to care for your peace pole appropriately. It is our hope and trust that the peace poles we distribute will be respected and cared for, that their purpose in promoting the message, "May Peace Prevail on Earth", will be worthy of their use of a precious resource.
