Thanks. I hope that they will be increasing the recycled paper content. I am not so sure that FSC certified wood is good - it has been subject to controversy as possibly destructive greenwash.

Thanks Cher for the article. Great news and I was glad to see all the other companies (60 total) listed that have severed ties with APP over their deforestation policy. I would also encourage everyone to click on the link at the bottom of the article to sign the petition for KFC to stop using packaging sourced from rain forests and supplied by APP. Read and noted.

Noted, Read and signed petition on KFC. Kudos to White Paper Co. of Canada. Happy to see some Canadian Companies with common sense and compassion. Thanks Cher.
Please join Orangutans: Men of the Forest group! Very active and concerned members of not only the Orangutans & habitats, but also tigers, elephants, rhinos & leopards and saving the rainforests that are their homes. APP and the Palm Oil plantations are two of the worst offenders! Thank You Michela!

Good news. APP needs to be put out of business. They are about as unethical as you can get.
