Kruger Products Supports Launch of My FSC(R) Story

Watch Kruger Products' FSC Story and inspire others to care about our forest by sharing your story too

Published 10-05-11

Submitted by Kruger Products L.P.

Kruger Products L.P., along with other notable Canadian organizations, including the World Wildlife Fund, is helping the Forest Stewardship Council® of Canada launch My FSC Story. It is an innovative collaboration of written and video stories of companies, organizations, NGOs and social groups demonstrating that they care about our forests by making sure they know the origin of their products and ensuring that they come from environmentally and socially responsible sources.

Visit www.fsccanada.org/krugerproducts.htm to watch our FSC Story and learn about why we chose FSC certification. You can help motivate others to care about the environment by sharing your story too.

Franke James, a notable Canadian who merges the use of art and storytelling to inspire people to take action and care about the planet, also developed a unique and compelling FSC Story, which can be viewed at www.fsccanada.org/ourforest.htm. Franke used her skills as an artist, photographer and writer to create a visual essay on her experience as she journeyed into the forest and explored what each and every one of us can do to ensure that we have healthy forests and strong communities for generations to come.

The launch of My FSC Story is part of International FSC Friday, an annual event dedicated to the celebration of forests around the globe, and the promotion of responsible forest management worldwide. On FSC Friday, people all over the world are invited and encouraged to consider the wood and paper products they buy and make responsible purchasing decisions by looking for the FSC logo. This is a simple way for everyone to become part of the sustainability solution.
