At Paperspring, the environment is our business. Without natural resources, we would not be able to produce our work, so we do everything we can to nurture the environment and ensure that our business is run in an environmentally sustainable and responsible manner.
As of February 5, 2009, Paperspring, alongside our parent company, Charlie Chan Printing, is one of the very few online social stationery websites to become certified as a chain-of-custody provider of environmentally-sustainable products by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). Some social stationery websites print on FSC-certified paper, but becoming an FSC-certified printer is a much higher standard that ensures following more stringent requirements of environmental sustainability. By joining the small minority of FSC-certified printers, Paperspring has shown through a rigorous and independent audit that we follow chain-of-custody procedures which track and record the usage of recycled paper content from the forest of origin through our production and to the end user.
This verifies that the recycled paper we use contains material from well-managed, sustainable forests that get re-planted and that also respect the human rights of workers in over 45 countries. The FSC is an international non-profit organization that is currently the global and national leader in the independent certification of forests managed to exemplary environmental and socio-economic standards. Please visit www.fsc.org to learn more, and feel free to verify our registered certificate #SCS-COC-002155, valid through February 4, 2014.
When you choose to print your project with FSC-certified recycled paper through Paperspring, you choose to contribute to conservation, responsible management and the green movement. Paperspring is proud to hold this distinction, and we welcome the opportunity to work with the growing number of consumers that also understand the value of using recycled paper and environmentally-friendly processes.
Although our FSC-certification is the official marking of our green movement, Paperspring and our parent company, Charlie Chan Printing, have been part of the environmentally-conscious movement for years. To that end, we implement the following environmentally-friendly procedures in our printing operation:
Ultimately, we at Paperspring believe that paper is a beautiful and useful medium. But as in all things, the ecosystem depends on a symbiotic relationship between use and replenishment. We strongly believe that when you choose Paperspring, you are choosing a printer that is at the forefront of certified environmental sustainability. We hope you value the measures we've taken to ensure that you as a consumer are making an environmentally-friendly decision when you choose Paperspring. Happy designing!
