Where in the NYC region can we buy an FSC-certified, custom wood entryway? We love wood and want something dramatic and functional, but *green*. In priority order: Certified reclaimed lumber, Certified newly cut lumber. Recycled glass would be nice. We’d like a BIG patio door too – same stipulations and decent R-value (U factor) too.
Thanks in advance.

I would say that the greenest wood products are recycled or salvaged and you can find some products like that at Build It Green in Queens.
If you want something new though, you can find local vendors of FSC certified wood from a guide the Rainforest Alliance put together.
Hope this helps, and good luck on your project.
