In a world grappling with environmental challenges, the looming problem of deforestation casts a shadow on our future. Shockingly, around 10 million hectares of forest disappear annually, contributing to approximately 16% of total global tree loss, with a staggering 96% of this deforestation transpiring in tropical forests.

Packaging with Check Tree Logo: FSC Certified!

Amidst this crisis, the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) emerges as a beacon of hope. Acknowledging the profound impact of forests on sustaining life on Earth, the FSC is committed to nurturing responsible forestry, ensuring the well-being of both forests and communities. As the world's leader in sustainable forest management, the FSC operates the most rigorous and trusted forest certification system, denoted by its distinctive "check tree" label on millions of products globally. A remarkable 46% of consumers worldwide recognize and trust this emblem.
