Purchase 100% post-consumer recycled, and/or FSC® (Forest Stewardship Council) certified paper
Closing the loop is an important part of recycling. Putting paper in the recycling bin is only the first part of the process. FSC® has chain of custody certification to ensure that you are buying what you think you are buying.
Look for recycled content when buying paper and paper products. Buy the highest recycled content you can find. Also look for the FSC® logo. FSC® is the Forest Stewardship Council. They certify that forests are managed sustainably. Many papers and paper products are available with high post consumer recycled content and/or FSC® certification.
