Edgewood, NY -- October 15, 2015 – U.S. Alliance Paper, one of the leading private label tissue manufacturers in the nation, will proudly display the Rainforest Alliance (RA) and Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) trademarks on certain of its products.
“For U.S. Alliance Paper, FSC certification is a huge step,” said John Sarraf, President. “Virgin fiber is preferred for its superior quality and represents the bulk of our raw material purchases. We are now able to ensure that these raw materials are purchased from suppliers who adhere to responsible forest management principles, uniting our company, our retail partners, and ultimately the consumers in a common effort to be good stewards of this fragile resource. Now we are able to offer our retailers a comprehensive range of paper grades and quality tiers, and their shoppers a superior quality product with no negative environmental impact.”
"The Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) certification process is rigorous by design," added Steve Saraf, Vice President of Sales, "in order to create a common definition for the otherwise vague and subjective notion of sustainability." FSC is a worldwide organization that defines a strict set of standards that a company must meet in order to prove that they are truly environmentally and socially responsible. Independent audits ensure chain-of-custody (CoC) compliance so that both retailers and consumers can be confident that they are making the right choices for the environment.
