Forest Stewardship Council
The Forest Stewardship Council was established in 1993 in response the world-wide
concern over global-deforestation. The organization has originated standards, trademarks,
and offers numerous accreditations for companies who practice sustainable forestry,
minimizing the impact on the Earth’s natural resources. By providing a recognizable
logo for companies to mark their products, consumers who are concerned about the
environment can now more easily identify products that are eco-friendly.
What is "sustainable forestry"?
In part, sustainable forestry is the practice of preventing the depletion of forests
by replanting trees that were harvested for production.
