Be Label Wise
Be label wise, look for the FSC label to take care of forests while you take care of the shopping.
How label wise are you when you shop?
Do you how the people who made your products were treated?
Were the forests and habitats where your paper came from looked after?
Does the toilet paper you buy protect from or add to the destruction of forests in Indonesia?
We know you want to do the right thing, and we know that it can be difficult to check every ethical claim that a product makes. This is where independent verification from a trusted label comes in.
When you see the FSC label on a product, you can be sure that it's been made from responsible sources.
FSC works to take care of our forests and those who rely on them, by protecting plants and animals, indigenous peoples' rights, forest workers' safety, and much more.
When timber leaves an FSC-certified forest we ensure companies along the supply chain meet our best practice standards also, so that when a product bears the FSC logo, you can be sure it’s been made from responsible sources. In this way, FSC certification helps forests remain thriving environments for generations to come, by helping you make ethical and responsible choices at your local supermarket, bookstore, furniture retailer, and beyond.
#Belabelwise, look for the FSC label to take care of forests while you take care of the shopping.
