FSC-certified

You’ll find FSC-certification on products sourced from one kind of material: wood. It’s a certification offered by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) which lets you know that the wood used – in anything from paper to construction materials and furniture to children’s toys – comes from forests that are sustainably and responsibly managed, keeping them healthy for generations to come.
