We are often led to believe that using paper is bad for the environment and that forest practices always lead to eroded lands and fewer trees—not so in North America! As the Two Sides infographic illustrates:
Over the last 20 years the forest industry worldwide has developed a number of respected certification programs that ensure the paper you use has come from a sustainable forest source. These include the Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®); the Sustainable Forestry Initiative® (SFI®) program; the American Tree Farm System® (ATFS) and systems endorsed by the international Program for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC). When you buy paper and other forest products look for one of the symbols shown on the infographic and you will know you are supporting responsible forest management practices. By demanding sustainably produced forest products we create incentive to properly manage forests and preserve forested lands for future generations.
