Forest friendly stories from the past year

BeLabelWise FSC 2

Read some of our favourite FSC certified stories from the past year


We love seeing people and organisations stepping up and doing their part for the future of our forests, clean air, and pure water. Here's a few of our favourite stories from those making positive changes, big and small!

1. Allbirds, making shoes out of FSC-certified trees.
Started by Kiwi, Tim Brown, AllBirds is a great story of sustainability and homegrown success. Allbirds started out making shoes out of wool and only recently explored making shoes out of paper. The amazing fibre is FSC certified to keep your feet, and the environment cool.

The material is "comfortable, breathable, and silky-smooth" - and yes, waterproof!

FSC, Fairtrade South Africa, Fair Trade Tourism, and the Marine Stewardship Council came together to create the Be Label Wise campaign. The campaign educates shoppers on how to identify products that will help put an end to unfair treatment of workers and unsustainable environmental practices.

Through Be Label Wise ordinary people see that their decision to buy ethical can have a positive impact on the people, animals, and the environment.
