We are losing endangered forests around the world due in a large part for paper. In fact, about 30% of our trees logged in the U.S. are logged for paper. Unfortunately, 3M is misleading consumers into thinking its products are not destroying our forests by using paper products certified by Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI). SFI is an industry scam that allows clearcutting of forests and does not even have tree replant requirements.
I encourage 3M—and other paper product companies—to dump SFI. Consumers interested in protecting our forests can look for the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) logo or look for 100% post-consumer paper products.
Let's not destroy our forests just for post-its. To learn more, go to www.ForestEthics.org/3M.
