Ten years ago this month the UN General Assembly declared March 21 the International Day of Forests to encourage their sustainable management. Forests are critical to fighting climate change and nearly 1.6 billion people around the world depend directly on them for food, shelter, and as a source of income.
Many of us are choosing to support sustainable forestry through our purchases. In fact, research from FSC and GlobeScan indicates that 86% of consumers say they make informed choices by checking product information before buying. FSC’s “check-tree” logo, which can be found of thousands of FSC certified products, makes it easy to do just that.
So, this spring, as we shake off winter’s grip, let’s refresh and renew with these top forest-friendly picks from ShopFSC.ca.
