vs. FSC Paper
While we have more and more options to ensure we do our bits to help our planet, with all the options available it can be confusing sometimes. Here's a little more info that might help you choose which Green option you want to take.
Recycled Paper vs Sustainable Paper, Which is the Green Option?
There are two types of eco friendly paper, and that is Recycled and the FSC paper. Both goals are ofcourse to minimise the green house gases and also to decrease the number of trees being cut down. But what are the main differences of these two types of paper? We have created a list below and also included links to help you understand the process better.
Forest Stewardship Council (FSC)
Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) is an organization that produces environmentally-friendly stock 100% from scratch or virgin material. This means no recycled stock is used and all supply is made from brand new material. This is made sustainable by allowing a specific portion of land otherwise known as a sustainably managed plantation to be the main resource of growing new trees for later harvest. This assures that no other existing forests or wildlife was cut down or destroyed to create the stock.
Recycled Stock on the other hand, as the name suggests, is produced by using old or used material to create a new and usable stock for printing. While this also helps save more trees from being cut down, the processes it takes to convert recycled materials into usable stock are not as cost effective as FSC as it does have to go through more production operations to prep it for future use since existing stock is involved.
