For the fourth year in a row, the Sustainable Forestry Initiative will be a part of the Easter celebration at the White House. We are very excited that the official White House Easter Egg will be packaged in a gift box made from paper certified by SFI.
We continually promote responsible purchasing decisions to the public, and we hope that this action taken by The National Park Foundation to use SFI-certified boxes will inspire the American people and American companies to make the decision to choose SFI products. In so doing, an important signal is sent in support of responsible forestry and conservation, not to mention buying SFI directly supports American jobs and communities who depend on keeping these working forests healthy and thriving.
Four years ago, the National Park Foundation decided to start making the conservation of American forests an integral part of the historical White House Easter Egg Roll by packaging the eggs in paperboard sourced by responsible managed forests.
By recognizing SFI in the White House Easter Egg Roll, The National Park Foundation sends the message that selecting certified forest products is not only a smart environmental choice but also a commitment to U.S. communities. We have been honored to be part of this American tradition the past four years and look forward to continuing the recognition and importance of multiple forests certifications.
