Protecting Forests and Minimizing Wood Products

When picking wood products, make sure it is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council.


| March/April 2004


While all wood products, including paper, should be conserved, there are ways to lessen their impact on forests. That’s where Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) steps in.

What it is: A nonprofit organization that encourages responsible management of the world’s forests. FSC’s high standards ensure forestry is environmentally responsible, socially beneficial, and economically viable.

What the label means: Wood products that carry FSC certification have been sourced from a forest where trees are sustainably harvested, ecosystems and biological diversity conserved, and threatened or endangered species protected. Sustainable logging advances the economic and social well-being of forest workers and local communities.

What to do: Ask for the FSC label when purchasing wood or paper products.



Where to shop: Home Depot, Lowe’s Home Improvement Centers and Kinko’s, as well as many other retailers.
