This page emphasises surfprint's commitment to environmental issues.
We utilise our resources to this end. All the artwork we receive from schools is in due course recycled, therefore completing the entire cycle of a guaranteed renewable resource from forester, to pulp and then paper mill, to printer, to the customer, and then to be recycled.
Our cards are printed on Carbon Balanced card stock which has been manufactured from a sustainable source.
Carbon Balancing is achieved by Carbon Offsetting or donating to World Land Trust (WLT) projects.
Balancing is facilitated by the WLT, an ecological charity, which ensures integrity of how our carbon impacts are balanced.
Our card stock carries FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) chain of custody certification. FSC is an international, non-governmental organisation dedicated to promoting responsible management of the world's forests. It was founded in 1993 in response to public concern regarding deforestation and the demand for a trustworthy wood-labelling scheme. It is supported by high-profile organisations including WWF, Greenpeace, Friends of the Earth and The Woodland Trust.
Chain of Custody (CoC) Certification is an independent assessment ,by a qualified and accredited expert, who verifies systems are in place to trace the flow of wood-containing products back to the certified forest.
