FSC Print Projects Contribute to Boone County Arboretum

Multi-Craft challenges Cincinnati businesses to go green and give back  
 
Multi-Craft’s Green Ideas in Motion program has been in effect since 2010.   Through this green print initiative, Multi-Craft makes a donation to the Boone County Arboretum for every print project that uses FSC certified paper.  The 2012 donation was just sent to the arboretum.  
 
The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certification supports smart and sustainable forestry.  Varieties of papers have been given FSC certification and are a way for businesses to support green initiatives, similar to printing on recycled paper.  Multi-Craft takes the green benefit one step further by making a donation to the local arboretum to support the protection of green space in our community.  
 
Since the program’s inception, Multi-Craft has completed 172 FSC print jobs that contributed to the annual donation.  Help us increase that number by learning more and choosing FSC certified paper for your next project.
