Staples Office Paper Carrying Rainforest Alliance Seal

Staples is leading the way.  A new brad of their office paper will be the first to carry the Rainforest Alliance Certified™ Seal. The paper will be supplied by Domtar Corporation, which produces the EarthChoice line of office papers, which are certified by the Forest Stewardship Council™ (FSC).

The new Domtar EarthChoice Office Paper is available to Staples Advantage and Staples.com customers in the U.S. It is a 20 lb. box for everyday printing on inkjet and laser printers.

The Rainforest Alliance has certified to FSC standards more than 65 million hectares (155 million acres) of forestland in 70 countries around the world since 1989.  The Rainforest Alliance helps meet the increasing demand for responsibly harvested forest products, by encouraging better on-the-ground forestry practices.  Through their practices, the rights and welfare of workers are protected.

Excellent move on Staples’ part.  This is a groundbreaking movement, as Staples is making a push to encourage its customers to purchase sustainable paper.  Kudos to Staples for partnering with Domtar Corporation.
