This year marks the 40th Anniversary for Earth Day so it’s important that you know what “FSC Certified” actually means!  StorterChilds Printing Company, FSC Certification # SW-COC-001530, is educating us on The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). Today we aren’t talking “Sustainable Design,” we’re talking “Responsible Design.”

The intent of the FSC system is to shift the market to eliminate habitat destruction, water pollution, displacement of indigenous peoples and violence against people and wildlife that often accompanies logging.”  Excerpt from

Now, if you read that aloud, you just sounded like a very, very smart designer, who cares very much for the environment, who wants every client to be known for GREEN practices, and with a line like that, will most likely persuade the most corporate client to go for the new-age organic look. We could all use a little more creative in our corporate, right?

StorterChilds is a choice GREEN printer. They are FSC Certified, they offer print-on-demand and variable data printing so that limited traditional inventory is no longer necessary. They are also partnering withAmerican Forests to help in the reforestation of the world and they maintain corporate partnerships that support responsible practices. From production to delivery, StorterChilds maintains an Eco approach.

Make 2010 a GREEN year!  Stand up for Print Design! – And start by at least making sure every printed piece is FSC Certified.
