Our future environment looks good because of the trees we plant today.
With everyone going “paperless” these days, it might have you believing that paper is bad for the environment. But we’ll let you in on a little secret: it’s not! Not when you go to the lengths we do to conserve our forests. One of the best kept secrets is that forests are renewable – they can be maintained by planting new growth. And in the United States, more trees are planted than harvested.
As members of both the Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) and the Sustainable Forestry Initiative® (SFI®), we are committed to improving the environment and our impact. We only procure paper from certified North American suppliers who are committed to preserving forests through responsible forest management. This means the paper you buy does not come from endangered forests, and the wildlife ecosystems created in the forests are maintained. These sustainable practices ensure healthy and abundant forests for present and future generations, while providing renewable, natural, raw materials for the production of paper and packaging products (AF&PA).
Paris is committed to improving the environment. It’s a priority for us – and it’s reflected in our products, our operations and our partnerships.
Solid partnerships with forest products industry leaders and paper manufacturers enable us to market the most environmentally friendly products possible.
We are reducing our carbon footprint through more efficient operations including zero waste manufacturing and energy efficient lighting.
Our products originate from responsibly-managed North American forests and are made using renewable and/or recycled fiber and lower impact manufacturing processes.
The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) promotes environmentally appropriate, socially beneficial and economically viable management of the world’s working forests through the development of forest management standards. FSC certification has become the gold standard by which responsible forestry is judged and is the recognized choice of over 85 leading environmental groups worldwide. To learn more, visit us.fsc.org.
SFI® is an independent, not-for-profit forest and paper certification program that integrates the perpetual growing and harvesting of trees with the preservation of wildlife, plants, soil, water, and air quality. In order to be certified, participants in the SFI program must undergo a thorough, third-party review of their operations. To learn more visit sfiprogram.org.
