A global celebration of responsible forestry. Celebrate with us!
What is FSC Friday?
On September 29th 2017, the Forest Stewardship Council is hosting ‘FSC Friday’ an annual event designed to raise awareness about responsible forest management- the best way to keep using forest products and keep our forests too. FSC Friday started in 2008 and has grown every year, spreading to be a global event.
Why FSC Friday?
We’re aiming to increase awareness of FSC so that more people choose FSC certified products more of the time. These choices can be personal, like choosing garden furniture, greeting cards or even toilet paper. Choosing FSC can also be great for the workplace; does your office have a policy to only buy FSC certified wood and paper? If not, why? Make the right choice. Choose FSC!
In 2015, at 12:00 pm EST, 158 social media accounts concurrently sent out a single message about FSC and responsible forestry using Thunderclap and reached over half a million through our social media campaign!
In 2016 certificate holders helped us raise awareness on social media by using out Toolkit of materials, several of them even printed our infographic and shared it around their offices. Domtar, Natural Pod and McLaren Press wrote articles about FSC Friday on their websites and we held a successful FSC Friday Cocktail Reception in Toronto with over 30 attendees.
Let’s work together to make 2017 even bigger!
