SYOSSET, N.Y., May 11 /CSRwire/ - Emerald Brand has added Forest Stewardship Council (FSC®) certified paper hot cups to their line of 170 environmental disposable products, demonstrating the company’s ongoing commitment to responsible forest management and environmental protection.

The Forest Stewardship Council is the global leader in forest certification, representing the gold standard for responsible management.

Companies, like Emerald Brand, that utilize FSC certified wood pulp create demand for products from responsibly managed forests, which in turn helps protect those forests for future generations.
Forest Stewardship Council
The Forest Stewardship Council is an independent nonprofit organization that promotes environmentally sound, socially beneficial, and economically prosperous management of the world’s forests. FSC was created in 1993 to help consumers and businesses identify products from well-managed forests. FSC sets standards by which forests are certified, offering credible verification to people who are buying wood and wood products. Because FSC is the gold standard for forest stewardship, it is the only certification system supported by the greater environmental community. 5,400 companies and 175 million acres of forestland are certified under FSC standards in the United States and Canada.
