The Origin App

The Origin App empowers you to make informed purchases by seeking products with known origin and to push companies to be more transparent.

Origin App users can:

Scan, search for, or browse wood products

to discover what kind of wood they contain and where it was harvested. You can browse a list of products that already have declared origin information.

Ask companies to share unavailable Origin Information in two ways:

1. Contact the company directly through the Facebook, Twitter, email or phone links in the App.

2. Click the “I want to know the origin” button on the product page. This will alert the Environmental Investigation Agency to search for origin information on the user’s behalf. The more users that demand origin information, the more leverage EIA will have to demand origin information from companies.
