FSC Friday - Environmentally friendly manufacturing
We are becoming more and more concerned with the environment, global warming and our carbon footprint which is leading us all to making more informed choices in life, whether that be changing your energy suppliers, using different household products, recycling and of course watching how much paper products we are using.
The Forest Stewardship Council® was set in 1993 up to allow consumers to make informed decisions on where their products are sourced.
They enable you to identify and purchase your paper, cardboard and wood products in the knowledge that you are helping to ensure that the forests are kept alive for future generations.
The Forest Stewardship Council® is an independent, not-for-profit organisation that ensure the paper and wood sold in the UK and other countries is from healthy and thriving forest that have not been felled.
Products are traced throughout the supply chain. From the original source to your supplier and lets you know exactly what you are purchasing. Products with the logo are from a responsibly managed forest with the highest environmental and social standards.
The Forest Stewardship Council® is highly respected and are globally responsible for managing the worlds forests. The Forest Stewardship Council® logo is a recognised and trusted trademark worldwide.
As a customer you can buy goods with the logo and be confident that you are not harming the world’s forest.
The Forest Stewardship Council® is endorsed by all the major charities like the World Wildlife Federation, Greenpeace and the Woodland Trust.
