Just thinking about new stationery makes our heart flutter— the freshly-sharpened pencils, a blank journal just waiting to hear your every thought, a fresh notebook ready for doodles. What doesn’t make our heart flutter is the way many stationery products are sourced. The paper and wood used in our stationery products — the No. 2 and colored pencils, the notebooks, memo pads, the hardcover bound journal, the wax paper and parchment paper — are made of responsibly-sourced paper and wood from FSC®-certified responsibly managed forests.


What does that mean? FSC is the world’s most trusted global certification standard in forest management. It means FSC-certified products always support responsible forest management. This is good for the environment and for the people and animals who depend on those forests to survive. 


FSC stands for Forest Stewardship Council, and they’re an important organization that is dedicated to promoting environmentally sound and socially beneficial management of the world’s forests. In adhering to the FSC’s rules, Brandless helps you make better choices that are also better for the world.
