In the U.S., 44% of consumers recognize the Rainforest Alliance CertifiedTM
green frog seal.*
The Rainforest Alliance Certified™ seal is a globally recognized
symbol of sustainability. It assures consumers that products come
from responsibly managed forests that benefit communities, wildlife
and the environment.
You can “shop the frog” by looking for the seal on over 600 products
– including Domtar EarthChoice® Office Paper. In addition to your
paper, you can look for the little green frog when shopping for coffee,
tea, chocolate, bananas, pineapples, flowers and more.

Domtar has worked with the Rainforest Alliance
since 2000 on responsible paper production and
fiber sourcing. Both organizations share the belief
that the best way to keep forests standing is by
adopting standards that promote the sustainable
use of resources and conservation of biodiversity.
To this end, Domtar has set the aspirational goal
of procuring 100 percent of its fiber from sources
that are Forest Stewardship Council™ (FSC®)
certified by the Rainforest Alliance.
The Rainforest Alliance thoroughly assesses candidates for FSC
certification via detailed, on-the-ground audits that include:
Species Inventories
Forest Inspections
Management Plan Reviews
Input from Interested Parties
Rainforest Alliance certification is awarded to forestry operations that
meet these stringent FSC requirements. When a forestry operation
achieves certification, they earn the right to display the FSC label
and Rainforest Alliance Certified™ seal on products and promotional
materials, helping consumers make smarter choices.
With help from the Rainforest Alliance, farmers, forest managers and
tourism businesses realize greater economic benefits by ensuring
ecosystems within and around their operations are protected, and
that their workers are well-trained and enjoy safe conditions, proper
sanitation, health care and housing.
The organization works to ensure millions of acres of working forests,
farms, ranchlands and hotel properties are managed according to
rigorous sustainability standards. These businesses are linked to
like-minded consumers, who can identify goods and services that
bear the Rainforest Alliance Certified™ seal or the Rainforest Alliance
Verified™ mark.
