Sustainable Forestry Initiative
Our Chicago location is proudly certified to the Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI) ® Certified Sourcing Standard. The SFI program promotes responsible forestry practices. While the corrugated boxes we produce are 100% recyclable and consist of a high percentage of recycled materials, you can be confident that with our SFI certification the balance of the corrugated board is coming from a responsible source.
