Reasons to buy FSC Certified Promotional Products
FSC certified forests are managed with consideration for people, wildlife and the environment. Fortunately, there are several benefits and reasons as to why you should choose FSC certified promotional products for your brands next promotion.
Here is some of the rationale behind purchasing FSC certified promotional products…
- You can buy wood products from all types of forests, however when you buy a wood product with a FSC logo, you’ll have a clear conscience knowing that your promotional products have been well sourced.
- The FSC label guarantees that all trees that are harvested are replaced or allowed to regenerate naturally.
- Parts of the forest are protected in order to protect rare animals and plants.
- FSC is the only wood certification scheme which has been endorsed by the major environmental charities including; WWF, Greenpeace and The Woodland Trust.
- FSC protects the rights of native people to use the forest. If they have sacred sites in the forest, these are exempt from tree cutting.
- FSC gives an assurance that future generations will be able to enjoy the benefits of the forest.
- The forest owner must use local workers to run the forest and provide training, safety equipment and a decent salary. The forest owner is often obliged to support the community in other ways, such as through the development of schools.
- FSC is a market-based initiative which also ensures better conditions for the forest and the people whose livelihoods depend on it.
- All of the wood is tracked from the forest to the store. Every link between the forest and the consumer is certified to make it clearly identifiable which wood is FSC certified and which is not.
- The FSC label can be found on wood and paper products as well as some non-timber forest products. You can find the FSC logo on paper, printed matter, kitchen utensils and many more products.
