SEPTEMBER CLEAN EARTH TIP: Forest Stewardship!



As much as 30 percent of hardwood lumber imported into the U.S. comes from forests harvested legally. 

Guarantee timber and wood products you buy come from legally harvested--and well managed--forests. The Forest Stewardship Council’s FSC trademark identifies forest products containing verified FSC materials using a special label. Like Green Seal,



FSC products are assessed and certified using social and environmental standards agreed to by the Forest Stewardship Council, an international coalition of timber buyers, traders, and non-government organizations--including environmental groups such as WWF and The Nature Conservancy. The FSC program has accredited more than 100 million acres of forest and several thousand products. For more information and a listing of FSC products visit www.fsc.org
