FSC is a movement of people that work together to create a different future for our forests and planet. And the work we do together could have a real impact on the livelihood of future generations. At Allegra of Lansing we choose to be part of the voluntary FSC® Certification partnership to support a positive change for forests and people around the world.

Responsible Paper Sourcing

By choosing FSC, you high-fived the forest your paper came from, and you made sure the forest would still be there for generations to come.

Trusted system for forest management

FSC is the only forest certification endorsed by leading environmental organizations. It means you can trust that FSC-certified products come from forests managed to keep them intact and healthy - for the people and animals who depend on them - forever.

Environmentally appropriate

Forest management ensures that the harvest of timber and non-timber products maintains the forest’s biodiversity, productivity, and ecological processes.

Socially beneficial

Forest management helps both local people and society at large to enjoy long term benefits and also provides strong incentives to local people to sustain the forest resources and adhere to long-term management plans.

Economically viable

Forest management means that forest operations are structured and managed so as to be sufficiently profitable, without generating financial profit at the expense of the forest resource, the ecosystem, or affected communities.

Thinking Green. Printing Smarter.

Recycling Programs: From paper to ink to money and everything in between, recycling saves. Period. It also reduces air pollution and landfill waste. And that's a good thing.

Controlling Waste: Being a control freak has its advantages. By establishing inventory controls, we reduce waste and save cash. Sequencing print jobs by ink color saves in changes and labor while eliminating waste.

Using Resources Wisely: Incorporating recycled papers - with high levels of post-consumer content - into your communications projects helps keep a lot of paper out of landfills. Using paper from responsibly or scientifically managed forests goes even further in reducing the damage to our world's natural resources.

Educating Consumers: By helping you understand the nature of "green" printing, you're really helping us produce a "greener" product for you.

A greener world is everyone's responsibility. By working together to minimize our environmental impact, we can make our corner of it a little bit cleaner.
