Is the Packaging on your Easter eggs responsibly sourced?
Have you checked to see is the Packaging on your Easter eggs responsibly sourced?
At this time of year, Easter Eggs are available in abundance in our supermarkets, but it is vital to learn the importance of the packaging they are provided in.
How do you know if it is responsibly sourced?
You can look for either the FSC® or PEFC™ logo to find out if your forest-based products are responsibly sourced.
Forest-based products can be anything containing pulp, paper, wood, etc.
FSC® (Forest Stewardship Council®) certification is fast becoming a requirement for any company displaying a responsible approach to purchasing wood or fiber-based products.
You can also find out more about this on our website.
In addition, you can also find further information about FSC® on their website.
PEFC™ (The Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification) is an international independent organisation promoting Sustainable Forest Management.
You can also find further information about this on our website.
In addition to this, you can also find further information on the PEFC™ website.
Chain of Custody Certification
Chain of Custody certification shows that the products you purchase are responsibly sourced.
They provide a Chain and traceability right the way from the forest through to the end consumer.
If you see either of these trademarks you can be assured that these items are responsibly sourced.

If you are part of this chain and are wanting to display the logo on your products, then you must be certified in order to do so.
If you are already certified with Interface NRM and would like to use the logo then please contact us for further information.
