Forests for all, forever

This Friday, FSC (the Forestry Stewardship Council) will be celebrating FSC Friday 2017, an annual celebration of responsible forestry in the U.K.

An important platform to raise awareness, FSC Friday is a great opportunity to inform and educate people – including employees, students, groups and the general public – of the value of FSC and the vital role forests play in our lives. It is also a chance to increase awareness and encourage consumers to look for the FSC logo and buy FSC certified products.

As consumers, we can’t absolve ourselves of corporate ethics and sustainability. We know the impact that consumerism has on the environment and we have a shared responsibility to minimise the impact that our buying choices have on the environment and the sustainability of the world’s forests.

To help spread the word, the FSC will also be running competitions and awarding prizes for the best submissions in the categories below:

Ideally taken on FSC Friday, but any photograph taken in an FSC certified forest within the last 12 months is eligible.

Best photo of an FSC certified product…
