White House Easter Eggs Demonstrate Responsible ForestryApril 1st, 2013 | Category: Industry News
For the fifth straight year, the National Park Foundation, the official charity of America’s national parks, has packaged the official White House Easter Egg in a gift box made from paperboard certified to the Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI) Standard®.
“We are pleased that the National Park Foundation is leading by example and sourcing certified products,” says SFI President and CEO Kathy Abusow. “This decision will inspire others in the public and private sector to support responsible forestry.
SFI points out that the Easter Egg gift box marks the second time this year that SFI-certified products have played a role in an historic Washington event. In January, President Obama took the oath of office for his second term on an Inaugural Platform made from wood certified to the SFI Standard.
