Is your packaging forest friendly?


Forest-based materials are commonly used for packaging. Our new video showcases the benefits of sourcing and purchasing FSC-certified packaging, to ensure Forests For All Forever.

Paper and paperboard made from forest-fibres are a popular choice for packaging. These materials are also commonly considered as a sustainable alternative to plastic packaging as they can be biodegradable and recyclable. However, they can also be a product of deforestation or poor forestry practices if not responsibly sourced. This threatens our forests, the wildlife and people who depend on them, and brand reputation.

FSC-certified packaging shows consumers that your brand is committed to ensuring that materials are responsibly sourced. The FSC label can be applied to packaging under a valid chain of custody certificate and allows you to capitalise on one of its key functions: promotion.
