What does it mean when a product is labelled as FSC Certified?
If a product is labelled “FSC Certified,” it means that the wood used in the product and the manufacturer met the requirements of the Forest Stewardship Council. The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), is a non-profit organization that sets high standards to ensure forestry is practised in an environmentally responsible and socially beneficial manner. The FSC certification is considered the “gold standard” designation for wood harvested from forests.
Why You Should Consider FSC-Certified Furniture
Forests cover 30% of the global land area, according to the FSC. Formerly rich forests in countries such as Indonesia, Malaysia, and Brazil, are being depleted at an unprecedented rate. At current rates of deforestation, the remaining biodiversity-rich natural forests in South American, Asian, and African countries could disappear within a decade.
Consumers who want to go green at home and in their landscaping should not only consider buying sustainable products but look and request for the FSC tree-and-checkmark logo. The logo means the wood is traceable to a sustainable forest.
