Jun. 01 /CSRwire/ - Seattle, WA . - June 1, 2009 - Sustainable Group, a company that offers an innovative line of recycled sales, training, and event supplies such as eco-friendly binders, notebooks and folders, pens and presentation materials, is excited to announce that each of its products made from bending chipboard is now certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). This includes the company’s flagship product, the ReBinder(TM), a recycled 3-ring binder.
The FSC sets forth principles, criteria, and standards that span economic, social, and environmental concerns. Being certified means that Sustainable Group now guarantees that these products can be traced back to a certified source, such as a well-managed sustainable forest, and that it supports the practice of sustainable forestry worldwide.
“Sustainable Group enables responsible organizations to increase brand awareness while demonstrating their commitment to environmental sustainability. Now those organizations will also be supporting FSC,” said David Stober, CEO of Sustainable Group. “FSC standards represent the world’s strongest system for guiding forest management toward a sustainable future. When an employee, customer, shareholder or partner sees a company with one of our products, they know that company is serious about the environment.”
Sustainable Group’s products are the first choice of top marketing initiatives, green teams, event management, and procurement groups within government agencies, major corporations, small businesses and non-profits who are looking to make a statement. All of Sustainable Group’s products are made in the U.S. from locally sourced materials, by a local work-force while still being as cost effective as traditional office supplies. By switching to Sustainable Group’s products, already 5,000+ companies make a measurable positive environmental impact having reduced millions of pounds of greenhouse gasses while saving millions of gallons of water, tens of thousands of trees, tens of billions of BTUs of energy and hundreds of tons of solid waste.
Stober continued, “By switching to Sustainable Group, everyone can do their part to reduce their carbon footprint, solid waste, and raise both brand and environmental awareness across their companies and organizations. Our environmentally conscious products are innovative, durable, and practical yet also help to reduce waste and save money.”
