FSC MIX labels identify products which are made with a combination of FSC virgin fibre, and/or recycled materials with Controlled virgin fibre. The mobius loop represents the total pre and post consumer recycled fibre.
FSC Recycled labels identify products which are made with 100% recycled fiber. The mobius loop represents the total pre and post consumer recycled fibre.
How to get the label on your product
Only FSC-certified companies may place an FSC Label on a certified product, or pass on FSC claims on invoices. To have the FSC Label placed on a product (e.g. printed document, piece of furniture or other finished product), you must:
- Verify that the company that is supplying the final product is FSC-certified http://info.fsc.org; and
- Ask that FSC-certified paper or wood be used and that the FSC Label be placed on the product or document.
