FSC Friday for Environmentally Friendly Forests!

It is the end of summer – whilst I am sad about the end of the luscious greenery, the warm autumnal shades are a sight to behold. Another fabulous thing about autumn is FSC Friday, which is celebrated every September, on the last Friday of the month. What is FSC Friday, I hear you ask? Well, it is organised by the Forest Stewardship Council who work hard to ensure that timbers used in a number of different industries are responsibly and sustainably sourced, and that recycled materials are used. The FSC logo is a great way to check that the products you are using are as environmentally friendly as possible. Raising awareness for their causes is the main aim of FSC Friday and there are plenty of fun ways to get involved:

  1. Dress Up!
    Now I’m not suggesting that you head to work in a tree costume, but arranging for your friends, colleagues, students or peers to wear green is an awesome awareness raising act – if you can get away with a more forest centric outfit, all the better to instigate conversations!
  2. Quiz!
    The FSC actually provide a quiz for the very occasion of FSC Friday and I can’t think of a better way to spend an afternoon at the end of the week.
  3. Cakes and Bakes!
    Green cake is often an indicator that something is amiss, but on this occasion it is a fun FSC Friday themed treat! Get everyone involved and see how many people from your organisation you can get in the kitchen for this worthy cause.

The FSC has some pictures of previous years showing what other people have done to raise awareness – my personal favourite is a tree planting. Cabineto and I will be spreading the word further this Friday by donning green and telling anybody who will listen about this noble cause. As you deTerrarinos know, our green credentials are very important to us – so we encourage you to get involved!

Ta ta for now,
