FSC Certification What are FSC Certified Products?
The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) is an international, independently audited certification and labeling system that allows buyers to choose paper and wood products that come from responsibly managed forests, and verified recycled sources. Under FSC certification, forests are certified against a set of strict environmental and social standards, and fiber from certified forests is tracked all the way to the consumer through the Chain of Custody certification system.
The FSC “check-tree” logo is your guarantee that the products you buy are responsibly sourced. The intent of the FSC system is to shift the market to eliminate habitat destruction, water pollution, displacement of indigenous peoples and violence against people and wildlife that often accompanies logging. FSC Certified Products Are Important for the Environment and Your Brand Corporate social responsibility issues have become a core piece of corporate brands. Responsibly dealing with your company’s footprint will not only reduce risk, but can also complement your brand if you can walk the walk and know how to have a conversation about it. Sustainable Group’s products that carry the FSC certification logo lets the world know that your company supports the highest social and environmental standards and products in the the market. The purchase of our products contribute to the conservation, responsible management, and community level benefits for well managed forests and verified recycled paper sources.
Our Chipboard All of Sustainable Group’s chipboard products (ReBinder, ReSleeve, RePlay, ReTab, ReMailer, RePouch, ReWrite, and ReBound) are made from 100% Recycled fibers (85% Post Consumer Recycled / 15% Post Industrial Recycled) and are FSC Certified. Our Printing Sustainable Group offers screen printing on all of our products. All of the inks we use are water based acrylics. Our inks are non toxic and clean up easily with water. We get asked from time to time if our screen printing inks are soy based - they are not. Even soy based inks have only a small percentage of soy in them (7-10%) and the rest is a petroleum based ink that require chemicals to clean up. At this time there are no soy inks for screen printing available.
