FSC-certified Timber Products

FSC-certified wooden products


Forests are essential to our lives. They give us fibre, food, fuel, fresh air and water. They have been devastated over the centuries for our needs and greeds, and now need protection so that future generations can also fulfil their needs for these materials and enjoy their sustainable survival.


The Forest Stewardship Council is an international non-profit organisation dedicated to supporting environmentally appropriate, socially beneficial, and economically viable management of the world’s forests. All forest products carrying the FSC logo have been independently certified as coming from forests that meet internationally recognised FSC Principles and Criteria of Forest Stewardship, including checking of the chain-of-custody (tracking of the timber to the end user).


Our forests give us many things like notebooks, paper, tissues, furniture and so much more. FSC® helps take care of forests and the people and wildlife who call them home. So you can keep your life full of forest products while keeping our forests full of life.

Examples of FSC-certified products


Colour and graphite (‘lead’) pencils are a delight to use and brighten up our lives. Like all products however, their manufacture should take place in an environmentally responsible way. Many pencils sold cheaply in Australia today are encased in rainforest timbers from South-East Asia. Their cost does not reflect the true cost of unsustainable forestry practices. Nor are many of the timbers used truly suitable for pencils – poor sharpening, splintering and breakage are the consequences.


All of the FSC certified wooden pencils in our range are encased in untreated purpose-grown timber from certified forests. No paint or lacquer has been used on the wooden body of the pencils, apart from the all-black pencils. Colours are high quality, smooth and safe (non-toxic), conforming to stringent European standards. The pencils are easy to sharpen and resist breakage/splintering. A range of FSC certified wooden ballpoint and gel pens is also available. You can see and buy them at BuyEcoGreen.


These FSC-certified pens and pencils can also be printed with your logo and other information – you can see a range of FSC-certified pens and pencils at EcoPromotions.
