What is sustainable about cutting down trees? 

Birla Cellulose has an intense forestry management system and robust wood sourcing policy. For every one tree that is used they give two back to the planet. Their policies are compliant to global standards and partake in conservation of ancient and endangered forests, High Conservation Value (HCV) forests, boreal forest and biodiversity. In their recent Hot Button Canopy Report, it states that Birla Cellulose "demonstrated an awareness of the status of Ancient and Endangered Forests in the countries from which they source, and efforts to protect them". The report describes other conservation efforts and actions that are being taken proactively, such as "using ForestMapper and complementary guidance documents such as the Dissolving Pulp Mill Classification tool to avoid sourcing from Ancient and Endangered Forests." 

Wood pulp is used widely across many products in our day to day life. Everything from paper packaging and baby diapers to furniture. What's important is that we make a conscious effort to support organizations who manage forestry sustainably. With this care and concern our forests will regenerate and renew themselves for future generations. 

At By Catalfo, we feel that the progress being made towards replacing fossil fuel based products (such as non-biodegradable plastics and synthetics) with sustainable ones that come from natural origins is very exciting. We refer to and rely heavily on third party audits and certifications to give us confidence in our sustainable sourcing efforts. These certifications are designed help us understand and verify how high or low of an impact a particular material has on our precious planet and all living things on it.
