FSC has launched an international web-based awareness campaign www.forestsfirst.org, thanks to the kind support of Global FSC partner AkzoNobel. Forestsfirst.org invites consumers across the world to draw their own tree (using their computer mouse pad), which is then planted in a virtual FSC forest.

The website’s powerful message is that, like a forest is made out of thousands of individual trees, individual consumers can, by their own actions, be part of something much larger. One person buying forest products with the FSC label may not seem to have a big impact, but when millions of consumers take action together it has a profound impact.

Visitors to the website can also learn more about the FSC system and discover what FSC means dozens of ‘real life’ examples.
