Choose Paper to Be a Force for Nature
When you choose paper and packaging, you’re choosing to support the growth of America’s forests. Here in the U.S., paper companies are committed to working with private forest landowners to grow and protect forests and their habitats. When we’re good to our forests, our forests are good to us.
Creating Healthy Forests to Benefit Everyone
Healthy forests help purify our air and water. And in practicing sustainable forestry, the paper industry works to ensure that trees of all ages provide a variety of habitats for diverse wildlife in young and old forests, including birds, squirrels, bears and other animals.
Planting Nearly Double the Trees That Are Used
The paper and packaging industry sources trees from private landowners and works with them to maintain their forestland; these landowners and papermakers grow and maintain forests at a rate nearly double the volume needed to make the products you rely on every day.
Sustainably Producing Paper and Forest Products
We’re sustainably producing the paper products that enrich consumers’ lives—like the recyclable boxes protecting your food and medicines in transit—while also increasing total forest area. In primarily working with private, often family-owned forests, national parks remain virtually untouched for you to enjoy activities from hiking to forest bathing.
Faces of the Forest
Over half of America’s forestland belongs to families and individual landowners, and it’s up to them to look after some of our most precious resources. Meet the faces of the forest.
