What is the Forest Stewardship Council, or FSC?
The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) is an international organization that brings people together to find solutions to promote responsible stewardship of the world's forests.
The FSC ensures that forests comply with internationally agreed upon FSC principles for Responsible Forest Management and certifies those that do. Certified forest operations can claim the forest products they produce come from a responsibly managed forest. This is the first step in the chain from raw material to finished goods.
What are FSC Certified Papers?
4OVER4.COM is proud to print our products on Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified papers. FSC Certification ensures that the paper we print on contains fiber from well-managed and responsibly harvested forests that meet strict environmental and socioeconomic standards.
Why is this so important? While "recycled paper" may be the big buzz term as of late, according to the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), fibers from virgin forests make up approximately two-thirds of the pulp that goes into papers made at North American paper mills. Less than 6% of the fibers of printing and office papers come from recycling. This means that more than 90% of printing and office paper has no recycled content at all. This is why at 4OVER4.COM we partner with vendors certified as suppliers of paper that comes from responsibly managed forests.
