World Wildlife Fund (WWF) indicates that deforestation can lead to global warming and is one of the biggest threats to environment. The area of tropical rainforests decreased by 25 percent during 1960-1990 due to deforestation, in other words, they disappeared by 22 hectares per minute.

The question is: Can we make changes by using FSC™ certified wood products?

The answer is: Yes, using FSC™ certified wood products can absolutely help protecting the environment. The more consumers choose to use FSC™ certified wood products, the sooner the problem can be solved. Your purchasing power can lead to a healthier world. Lots of corporations decided to produce/use FSC™ certified wood products in recent years, such as IKEA, B & Q, Home Depot, HSBC Bank, Xerox and so on.

How does FSC™ work?

Through FSC-FM (Forest Management) and FSC-CoC (Chain of Custody), it is assured that the products you purchased is made of planted forests.

Under the strict quantity control by FSC™, each process in the chain of custody can be tracked.

What’s the difference between FSC™ certified paper and recycled paper?

Despite the fact that recycled paper is suitable for cartons and newsprints, it may lead to secondary pollution while producing high-end products. In addition, recycled paper still comes from deforestation of tropical rainforest and can be regenerated for only 5 to 6 times. It does slow down the destroying of the earth, but the only thing it can do is just “slowdown”. As FSC Certified Paper is made of planted forests, people can enjoy what they purchased without hurting the environment.
