Rainforest Alliance: Follow the Frog

Rainforest Alliance

The Rainforest Alliance is celebrating its 30th anniversary in 2017 – 30 years of working towards conserving biodiversity and ensuring sustainable livelihoods! From January 30th – February 12th, companies and consumers can join in on the Follow the Frog campaign, which will encourage individuals to work towards rebalancing the world through every day actions.

What is the Rainforest Alliance?

The Rainforest Alliance is a network of individuals that aims to rebalance the planet by building strong forests and healthy communities around the world. To work towards this goal, the Rainforest Alliance provides training to farmers and foresters, works with businesses committed to sustainability, and motivates citizens to adopt sustainable lifestyles.

Rainforest Alliance and the Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®)

By partnering with indigenous forest communities, governments, and companies committed to responsible sourcing, the Rainforest Alliance has helped to prevent the deforestation of 4.4 million hectares in high-risk forests. The Rainforest Alliance is the world’s largest and leading Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) Forest Management certifier. FSC® certification proves the origins of the paper being used and promotes responsible forest management.

How can you get involved?

As part of our commitment to sustainability, we focus on environmental responsibility across four pillars: paper, the planet, people and partnerships. Offering our customers materials that have been sourced responsibility is important to us – 91.07% of paper purchased by TPH in 2016 was FSC® Mix certified (FSC® C019596).

All papers that we offer that are FSC® certified can be printed with both the FSC® label and Rainforest Alliance Certified™ seal. This shows your customers that the product has been responsibly sourced and that you care about the world’s forests! Call your closest TPH location today to discuss your sustainable printing options.

You can participate and follow along with the Follow The Frog campaign with the hashtag #FollowTheFrog. This global movement includes both individuals and companies that work with the Rainforest Alliance to support a sustainable future!

TPH was recognized as the #1 most sustainable and forest friendly printer in Canada by Canopy in 2016! You can read more about our environmental initiatives in our 2016 Sustainability Report.
