Lumber Liquidators was turning virgin trees from the worldâEUR(TM)s last Amur tiger habitat into floorboards, until a team of undercover environmentalists penetrated its shady supply chain. Now the company faces charges under the Lacey Act.

Noted. Thanks for posting, Cal.

Right below the article is a box: "What You Can Do" linking to Sierra Club to send a message regarding the Lacey Act. Message sent.

"WHAT YOU CAN DO
Write to the Department of the Interior and Department of Agriculture and tell them to fully and vigorously enforce the Lacey Act. When buying wood products, ask salespeople about the legality and sustainability of their store’s supply chain."
===========
I am not planning to buy any wood products: but I DID write to the Dept. of the Interior and the Dept. of Agriculture, two postcards.

If you click on "Lacey Act" it should also take you to the Sierra Club Petition - but it isn't working right now for me! Will try it again later.
