Celebrate forests with us during FSC Forest Week 2022

This year, from the 24th to 30th September we are proudly participating in the FSC Forest Week campaign by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). This campaign aims to highlight the value of forests and how choosing sustainably sourced products can protect our forests of the future.

So what is FSC? Good question!

The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) is an international organisation dedicated to promoting responsible management of the world’s forests. FSC certification means that you can be sure that the product you are purchasing has come from a forest that is being managed in a sustainable way. This means that when you choose FSC-certified products (like The Cheeky Panda!) you’re helping to take care of our forests and all the wonderful and important life they sustain.

Forest play an important role in tackling climate change and supporting biodiversity by providing a habitat to millions of animals, plants and even humans! However, threats to the world’s forests are growing due to deforestation from expanding agriculture, and illegal logging, usually resulting from the demand for cheap wood and paper (you know the type of toilet roll that scratches your bum? Yep probably the result of some illegal logging!). For this reason, organisations like FSC are crucially important to promote sustainable forest management so forests and people alike than thrive.

We are proud to be supporting FSC forest week to celebrate our commitment to forests by ensuring each and every Cheeky Panda product that we sell is made from FSC certified bamboo. Now, we are all aware of the importance of tree forests, but what about bamboo forests?

We all know by now that bamboo is a wonder plant, if you need to refresh your memory on why its so great, check out last weeks blog for World Bamboo Day (linked). Bamboo forests supply more ecosystem services than any other type of planted forests (told you, wonder plant!) and this is why we ensure we only use sustainably sourced bamboo to make our wonderful products.

This week, we invite you to celebrate forests with us and share what you’re doing to protect them!
