Working With The Forest Stewardship Council®
With current eco-friendly trends gaining in popularity, companies are showing an interest in where their products and materials come from. As a result, ensuring their packaging and products are from responsible sources, we work with the Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®)( FSC® C103468).
The Forest Stewardship Council®
The Forest Stewardship Council® is an international non-governmental organization. The council’s dedication is to promote responsible management of the world’s forests. Most importantly, this council develops a system of forest certification and on-product labeling. The labeling process enables consumers to identify materials from responsible sources like wood and paper.
According to the Forest Stewardship Council® each label provides information about the origin of materials to make the finished product. You can find FSC® labels on millions of products from around the world. For example, you can find responsibly sourced materials on paper shopping bags and corrugated shipping boxes. By choosing products with FSC® packaging materials, you are helping to conserve the world’s forests. Additionally, each label provides information about the origin of the materials.
First, having an FSC® certification means a company follows strict social and environmental standards of the Forest Stewardship Council®. In other words, there are two types of FSC® Certifications. For owners and managers, the forest management certification is a guarantee your operations meet FSC® standards. The other is for business manufacturing or trading forest products. This verifies the correct handling of products at every stage. From the forest to the end user.
These certifications require companies to be responsible for several actions. The company must follow all legal verifications and applicable laws. They must reduce the environmental effects of logging and foresting. Finally, respect the rights of the forest workers and local communities.
Next, having an FSC® certification creates new opportunities for businesses from forest owners and managers to manufacturers. Having an FSC® label on your paper shopping bags or custom boxes let your customer know your product was created from responsible sources. We are proud of our FSC® certification and are here to guide you through the development of your responsibly sourced packaging collection.
Staying Environmentally Compliant
Finally, brands and businesses alike take pride in their products. They are proud of the processes in which products and packaging stay environmentally compliant. That’s why it’s important to work with the Forest Stewardship Council® as well as other vendors with this certification.
We are proud to work with The Forest Stewardship Council® as they responsibly manage forests and the resources that come from them, such as paper. Furthermore, the council prohibits the use of hazardous chemicals, prevents deforestation and uses only quality water sources to protect each forest. Abiding by these guidelines from the Forest Stewardship Council® creates eco-friendly and ethical materials to create packaging.
In short, it is of utmost importance to us that our packaging is created ethically with ecological consciousness in mind. We want to make a better product not just for us, but for our customers and the environment. Further to working with our customers and the Forest Stewardship council® to create the most eco-friendly packaging, we also stay in compliance with ever-changing bag ban laws across the country.
