What To Look For in Paper

If you see these icons on your paper, that’s a good thing. Here’s what they mean:

FSC or SFI logo

Forest Stewardship Council & Sustainable Forestry Initiative are programs that guarantee the paper comes from responsible sources and protect wildlife, water quality and biodiversity.

TCF or PCF

The safest paper bleaching processes are totally chlorine-free (TCF) or processed chlorine-free (PCF). More info.

Post-Consumer Recycled Content

The “recycle” symbol doesn’t mean that the product is made from recycled material. Rather, it typically means that the product can be recycled. Look for a high percentage of post-consumer recycled content whenever possible.
