We use Woodpak.com to produce our wholesale display boxes because we liked and supported their environmental initiatives. The excerpt below is from our wholesale box manufacturer:
Buy responsibly: All wood is not created equally. We make every effort to buy raw materials that meet the criteria set out by the Forest Stewardship Council whose mandate is to promote environmentally appropriate, socially responsible, and economically viable management of the worlds forests. Our efforts in this area include purchasing virtually all our wood from small local mills and purchasing almost all residual wood. Our sawdust waste is sent to a nearby co-generation plant where the waste wood is used to generate heat and power.
