When you’re going to play outside, it makes sense to do so while wearing or toting items that were designed with those natural spaces in mind. It doesn’t matter if you’re headed to the beach, the woods or your favourite city park, there are FSC-certified products that can help you put your green foot forward, by ensuring you’re caring for the ecosystems that double as your playground.
For those trying to support healthy forests, the FSC label is a trusted seal since, according to Global Consumer Research, seven in 10 shoppers who recognize the logo say it motivates them to make a purchase.
