We invite you to download and use the PSSMA Renewable Resource logo
on multiwall shipping sacks manufactured entirely of paper. Using it
is a convenient way to communicate the environmental benefits of
choosing multiwall packaging made using a renewable resource -- paper.
The logo should only be used on multiwall sacks
constructed primarily of paper. If the sack also contains
non-renewable materials, such as a plastic ply or liner, a clear,
prominent, qualifying statement should be added, e.g. "Also contains
one ply of polyethylene film." .
Increasingly, the forests of North America which supply
the raw material for paper shipping sacks are being certified as well
managed in conformance with the Sustainable Forestry Initiative
program which integrates the perpetual growing and harvesting of trees
with the protection of wildlife, plants, soil, water, and air
This independently governed program provides education,
certification standards, certification audits and on-product labeling
to document renewable paper content. For more information and a list
of participants, visit the SFI Program.
We encourage purchasers of paper shipping sacks to talk
with their U.S. suppliers about the benefits of adding the PSSMA
Renewable Resource logo to their shipping sacks.
