There is too much greenwash. Better to avoid new paper or wood products.

FSI is different that FSC. Greenpeace supports FSC.

"The certification of the Kenogami Forest in northwestern Ontario is a perfect example of SFI’s failure to protect endangered species and habitats as well as local communities,”

it seems that we can not do everything right....
