What is Rainforest Alliance?
The mission of the Rainforest Alliance is to protect ecosystems and the people and wildlife that depend on them by transforming land-use practices, business practices and consumer behavior. Companies, cooperatives and landowners that participate in our programs meet rigorous standards that conserve biodiversity and provide sustainable livelihoods.
Why look for the Rainforest Alliance seal?
FSC certified papers and envelopes is an effective way to demonstrate your, or your client's, commitment to sustainability. As customers and shareholders become increasingly concerned about where and how products are made, they are demanding that companies use products that come from sustainable and responsible sources. Printing on FSC certified papers and envelopes saves forests, protects wildlife habitats, keeps water clean and protects the rights of local communities and aboriginal peoples worldwide.
Approved Product Statements for Product Packaging & Off-Product Promotions: Companies using the RAC seal may also increase a product's consumer appeal by educating consumers about the environmental, social and economic benefits of Rainforest Alliance certification.
