Thank you for celebrating forests on FSC Friday!

FSC Friday – Without forests there would be no maple syrup. Maple Syrup is made from maple trees. These trees store starch in their trunks and roots before the winter, the starch then converts to sugar and rises in the sap in the spring. Maple syrup was first collected and used by Aboriginal Peoples of North America – so in case you were curious, it wasn't Aunt Jemima. Without this sugary staple, our pancakes would just have to hang out with the butter. Look for the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) label when buying forest products and help keep our forests healthy. 

FSC Canada would like to thank the countless numberof people that helped celebrate FSC and responsible forestry on FSC Fridaywhich took place on September 27th, 2013. 

FSC Friday is a global event that takes place annually on the last Friday of September. By celebrating FSC Friday, we aim to elevate awareness of FSC and responsible forest management. 

FSC Canada celebrated this year by hosting asocial media campaign on Twitter and Facebook talking about things that wouldn't exist without forests. We received great tweets and likes on our social media sites and appreciate every single one of them!
