Printing for the Environment

Paper is recyclable and renewable. Although there continues to be a lot of discussion on the use of forest products and the impact of this use on the environment, some of the true facts remain obscured.

Organizations like Forest Stewardship Council ® FSC ® manage the growth and harvesting of forests as a renewable resource. Trees are now planted and grown as an agricultural crop. They are harvested, used as products and in many cases recycled. In most cases, the use of paper is more environmentally friendly than the use of petroleum based products such as plastics and their by-products.

Allegra False Creek is FSC certified

Incorporating recycled papers – with high levels of post-consumer content – into your communications projects helps keep a lot of paper out of landfills. Using paper from responsibly or scientifically managed forests goes even further in reducing the damage to our world’s natural resources. In pursuit of this goal, Allegra False Creek has been certified to Forest Stewardship Council ® FSC ® Chain-Of-Custody standards.
