Our products will be FSC Certified

The FSC is an international non-profit organization founded in 1993 as a voluntary and market-based mechanism for ensuring that the world's forests are managed in an environmentally responsible, socially acceptable and economically viable manner.

Under FSC certification, forestry companies are independently audited to meet the FSC's strict forest management standards. Beyond the forest, all producers along the supply chain must be chain of custody certified. At every stage of manufacturing or distribution, the fibre going into a product is tracked and identified. The FSC system not only makes certain that virgin fibre used in a product is from a sustainable source, but it ensures that claims regarding the recycled content of products are verifiable. In an unbroken chain of commitment from forest to consumer, the FSC label carries the promise that a product comes from a forest friendly source.

Perhaps the most remarkable thing about FSC is that environmental groups the world over agree that when it comes to responsible forestry FSC is the only credible assurance for consumers.
