FSC Friday 2015
Today is FSC Friday a day we all join together in annual celebration of responsible forestry.
FSC is a global organisation committed to the promotion of responsible forest management across the world. FSC enables customers and businesses alike to buy responsibly sourced wood and wood products such as timber.
You may be buying wood products without even realising, for example toilet paper. Do you choose toilet paper and look for the FSC logo? You should; the little tree with a tick is what you should look for when you are purchasing wood products, to ensure that you engage in saving our forests for our future generations.
FSC awareness needs to be raised to ensure that our forests are sustainably managed and last for all, forever. Always look for the little tree with a tick when you are purchasing anything from furniture, to greeting cards. Is your office consciously purchasing FSC certified products? Paper, desks? Does your workplace have a policy in place to ensure that only FSC certified goods are purchased? If it does not, why?
You can get involved with FSC Friday and raise awareness and take steps to save our precious forests all year round. FSC is celebrated by people all over the world in many different ways. Today, local schools are planting trees, businesses are having internal FSC events, and public authorities are also taking part in raising awareness. Change can also be made all year round, by promising to always look for the FSC logo. It is that simple, but a huge difference can be made.
Last year’s FSC Friday was an enormous success, you can see the video here:
