Looking for sustainable paper bags or packaging? Then the bags and packaging made from FSC® paper are the products made for you. With these products, you support sustainable forestry.
More and more often we come across the FSC® trademark on paper packaging and carrier bags. The organization called ‘’Forrest Stewardship council’’ or in short FSC® guarantees that the wood from the paper used comes from sustainable managed forests. The balance is kept between the ecological, social and economic aspects of forestry. As well as people and animals depending on a well-kept forest.
All parties involved in the supply chain must be a member of FSC®. From the forestry to the production of the wood, the paper industry ,the production and the trader of the bags. A yearly financial deposit is asked and FSC® actively contributes to reaching their goals.

Which impact does the FSC® trademark have?
Approximately 25 years ago, the FSC® trademark was founded to protect forests world-wide. The result? By now 200 million hectares of forest are certified. It is 50 times the size of the Netherlands. And the impact is large because FSC® focuses on the sustainability of the nature but also on the economic and social worth. The FSC® forestry gives a future to people and animals who depend on the forest. FSC® also contributes against climate change.
How does FSC® work?
The illegal chopping of wood is a 100 billion industry. If we keep going at this rate, than every minute a forest (of a size of 36 soccer fields) is chopped down. This phenomenon happens especially in the Amazon, Central-Africa and Indonesia. It increases the CO2 emissions by 15% a year.
A FSC® forest is also chopped down?
The short answer is : no! A FSC® forest needs 30 years to grow. One year represents 100 m2 of forest. Every year, only one of these squares can be chopped down which gives the forest some time to recover afterward. A few trees are harvested, per hectare only. A FSC® forest gives people and animals a place for a sustainable living.
