Over 60 companies have been recognized for their pollution prevention achievements over the life of the program.
LOGical Creations is very lucky to be supported by the city of Airdrie and the province of Alberta. Mayor Linda Bruce and the entire city council even wrote us a letter of support to include in our application for the award, as did the Director of Alberta Environment.

Logical Creations is a custom log furniture builder. Since our inception we have implemented a zero waste policy. We build all of our furniture from recycled trees; we called it “Treecycling”. Rather than harvest live trees we have chosen instead to only harvest those trees that have already died in the forest. In doing so we are taking the fuel out of potential forest fires. We compost our shavings and saw dust and share left over log pieces with the community as fire wood.
Where possible we use only hand powered tools such as bow saws and axes and make many other efforts to lower our green house gas emissions. All office by-products are recycled.
Having seen a need Logical Creations pioneered “TREECYCLE” a recycling program to shred used Christmas trees to be utilized in Airdrie city parks while raising almost $5,000 in aid for the Food Bank.
We are self taught and are very passionate about bringing back this lost art of the pioneers. We build all of our furniture the old fashioned way? by hand! We peel the logs using the old draw knife method. This leaves a beautiful texture to each log we use. We believe log furniture should be a beautiful and functional work of art. It is furniture to be pasted down to your grandchildren!
Our furniture can be seen in many Canadian homes such as former Calgary Mayor Al Duerr, The Deerfoot Inn and Casino and other wonderful people.
“When trees go to heaven it?s only LOGICAL that they end up in our CREATIONS”
