Today is FSC Friday, ‘but what is it?’ we hear you asking! FSC is the Forest Stewardship Council, who are working to “raise global awareness of the importance of forest management” to help #SaveOurForests and #SaveOurClimate. At Respond, we are passionate about reducing our effect on the environment, and are continuously working on becoming more sustainable and environmentally friendly with our packaging and products. So today, we would like to share the importance of FSC Friday, and some of the steps we are taking with you.
The FSC, (or Forest Stewardship Council), promote environmentally appropriate and economically viable management of the world’s forests. So, for this FSC Friday, the FSC are raising awareness for the importance of responsible forest management and the interplay between climate change and forests. One of the biggest ways we are working towards being environmentally-friendly through forest management is through our printing.
All of our booklets, literature and support documents are printed on FSC certified paper from well-managed forests. When you see the FSC logo, you can identify when paper and other materials have been produced from well-managed forests and/or recycled sources, helping to ensure our forests are alive for generations to come.
The FSC logo signifies the use of sustainable paper, without causing any harm to the world’s forests, and it can be recycled.
Some of the other ways we are working towards becoming more environmentally friendly include:
We are so proud of the steps we are taking to become more environmentally-friendly, which we hope you will start to recognise as part of our support service. For more information about FSC click here.
