D.I.G. (Do It Green)
We're leaving our mark. At Smead, keeping the world organized also means keeping forests sustainable. In 1989, we realized we could have a positive impact on our environment by diverting used paper from landfills and reusing it in the manufacture of filing products.
Ever since, every Smead® brand paper product we've made has contained post-consumer recycled material. Hundreds of Smead items meet or exceed the progressive requirements used by government agencies and corporations when choosing earth friendly office supplies.
Careful management for future generations. We go even further by selecting paper suppliers who practice Sustainable Forest Initiative requirements, and ensure that the virgin fibers used in Smead products are harvested from tree farms and not from old-growth forests. Even the boxes we use for our products are made with post-consumer recycled material.
In a world that needs careful management for future generations, we all need to make the right choices to both keep our offices organized, and our environment healthy.
