Thanks, Mr. Davis, for your note about the straw-based shelving. This
question is to you and the rest of the group:

Has anyone conducted a rigorous analysis of the impacts of remiving
these organic materials from farm land?

I support the idea of finding sustainable substitutes for wood, but I've
been wondering for a while about the comparative impacts, especially goven
the rate at which we're losing top soil, etc.

Thanks to all, and Happy New Year.
