Look for the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) label when purchasing wood products and help protect forests.
When you see that FSC-certified wood, it means there has been an independent, objective evaluation of forest management practices of a company. The program also certifies companies that process, manufacture or sell products made from certified wood. The FSC uses an eco-label to certify products that come from well-managed forests and to help consumers make responsible purchases.
Three places to look for FSC-certified wood:
Use your purchasing power when you buying wood products at The Home Depot, Lowe's, or your local lumber yard or flooring supplier.
Ask your homebuilder or architect to use FSC-certified products on building projects.
Look for FSC-certified wood furniture from Pottery Barn, Crate & Barrel, and several other retailers.
