Most Innovative Event
The most innovative event in 2010 was held by Arjowiggins Graphic. The staff organised a ‘My favourite tree’ event where all employees were asked to draw, write about or build their favorite tree from play-doh - all on 9lives FSC certified paper from PaperCo. Congratulations to all Arjowiggins staff for their original idea.
”We are all guilty of taking paper for granted, and most probably, do not spare a thought for its journey from forest to consumer. I think our FSC Fun Day promoted the importance of looking after our source material, raised awareness within the workforce, and allowed us the opportunity to have lots of Fun and Socialise with our Colleagues ! It was great !”

Congratulations to the staff at 4DM Group in Kettering for being the runners up of the innovative FSC Friday event competition. The staff at 4DM Group came up with several ideas for celebrating FSC Friday, they used factory notice boards and FSC leaflets to spread the FSC message, along with encouraging staff, via an company on line calendar, to visit their local woods and forests. An internal ‘spot the leaf‘ competition, ‘plant a tree pledge’ and ‘wear something green at work‘ combined nicely with their ‘ cake for charity’ morning.
