Ep. 8: Saving Trees with Joe Luttwak, the Entrepreneurial Lorax | The Business for Good Podcast with Toni Okamoto & Paul Shapiro
Is the future of wood tree-free? Maybe so, because of companies like Lingrove, a start-up that’s making a wood-like material from flax.
The U.N. just released a new report basically saying we’re in deep doo doo if we don’t make dire changes now to avert the worst warming of the planet. How deep is that doo doo? Cvilizationally-threateningly deep.
One of the biggest contributors to climate change is deforestation, since trees suck C02 from the air and help keep the planet cooler. They also provide homes and food for wildlife, so when we cut down trees for wood it makes life much more difficult for our feathered, furry, and scaly friends.
Legislation is certainly part of the answer, but without viable alternatives to our destructive ways–think clean energy compared to fossil fuels–it’s not so likely we’ll be able to save humanity from, well, ourselves. That’s where innovative companies like Lingrove come in.
Hear from Joe in this new interview about his journey from working at Ferari to founding a guitar company to now founding and running a company whose goal is, just like Dr. Seuss’s Lorax, nothing short of saving the trees.
And, it’s the first interview we’ve done where a guest plays a musical score live for us, all on a wood-free acoustic guitar, of course. Enjoy!

Joe recommends Natural Capitalism: Creating the Next Industrial Revolution.
He also recommends reading Mongo Bay for environmental news.
Joe’s tree-free wood company is Lingrove.

Hey Chris, love the show! I’ve been telling everybody I climb with they need to check it out, especially those I know spend a lot of time driving across the state each week.
Okay, sorry for the length of this comment, but…
This episode, really hit home for me, because 10 years ago I had a near-fatal climbing accident, also likely due to a cavalier attitude and a far too comfortable approach to the day. Hubris will get you every time…
The short version of the story is I tumbled and bounced about 100ft. down a peak in the North Cascades. I broke 3 of my 4 limbs, mangled a hand, and had a skull fracture with a serious head injury. My incident is different from Craig’s in that I remember none of it! I was airlifted from the peak, was in a coma for about 9 days, and I really remember nothing at all until about 3 weeks later, still in a bed on the critical care floor of the hospital.
But I do remember the 11 months of rehab, re-learning to walk, multiple surgeries, and the long process of returning to “activities of daily living”. I also remember the conflict inside as I wondered if I could physically ever climb again, more importantly if I ever wanted to, or should even try. Craig’s remarks on these aspects of his recovery were almost identical to my own, as if he were reading from my (past) thoughts. I plan to play this podcast again just to have my wife listen with me, so that she can perhaps understand a little more of the conflicts and emotions I went through at that time in my life (we met about 3 years later) and why climbing has remained such a passion of my life, despite nearly ending it prematurely.
But what struck me the most about this great story was how often I found myself laughing out loud! I believe humor to be a vital coping mechanism in times of great stress and despair. I now work as a paramedic for an ambulance service, and I truly appreciate the necessity of a little off-colored humor to help relate and cope with traumatic or sometimes morbid events of our lives (as I am exposed to them almost daily). I am humbled by, and truly admire Craig’s life perspectives and positive attitude toward continuing on with his life, and his passions.
I haven’t been able to keep that one line out of my head, “I need to cut off my leg so I can climb”. Keep cranking Craig! Hope to meet you someday. Chris… likewise, and keep up the great work! I plan to make a contribution to your podcast efforts soon (and buy some coffee as well).
