FSC is an organization that works to take care of earth’s forest and the beings who rely upon on them.
An FSC Certifiation does indeed carry weight. When a product has an FSC label it assures the consumer that they are buying a product made from wood responsible/sustainable sources.
FSC Labels: Know the Difference
FSC 100%: Wood within the product comes completely from FSC forests. According to the FCS Global Market Survey Report 2014 one third of all FSC products are FSC 100%.
FSC Recycled: All wood and paper in the product comes directly from reclaimed material.
FSC Mix: These products contain wood from recycled material, controlled wood, or FSC-certified material. Controlled wood cannot be illegally harvested or in violation of traditional and civil rights.
FSC-Certified Product Does not Mean A Company is FSC Certified
Firstly, a company wants to add the FSC label too any products must first earn a Chain of Custody Certification.
This certification declared that the company sources its materials from FSC-certified forests and is following FSC standards.
Products from the same company are not always made from the same materials. As such, not all products can be said to be FSC-certified as being certified requires the product to be made out of FSC standard material.
In 1994, FSC was created and has accomplished alot since then.
