The Hong Kong Polytechnic University School of Design (PolyU Design) happily announces that its Digital Print Shop has joined the FSC™ Trademark Programme for non-certificate holder with an FSC License Code FSC-N002782 to educate students on responsible use of forest products. Currently available to the users of its laser printing services are FSC-certified paper products complying with the FSC’s high environmental, social, and economic standards.
Trial and errors are unavoidable and precious to all design students, and this leads to material consumption and disposal. Observing numerous used materials in the waste bins in the past, Digital Print Shop decided to take further steps to participate in environmental protection, minimize waste generation, enhance eco-awareness of the students, while well balance the purpose of learning and environmental friendliness. Since the beginning of 2017, the Digital Print Shop has gradually upgraded its service to fulfill the requirements of FSC programme and launched the ‘We go green! We stay green!’ campaign.
FSC™ (Forest Stewardship Council®) is a global not-for-profit organisation dedicated to promoting responsible forest management around the world. The FSC certification scheme ensures that forest products are responsibly managed and harvested. FSC™ works to take care of the world’s forests for future generations – making sure we all have ‘Forests For All Forever’.
As committing themselves to the ‘We go green! We stay green!’ campaign, students will not only devote themselves to preventing global deforestation by using FSC paper, but can also use newly launched recyclable form board to reduce unnecessary wastage. Students could be beneficial from the immediate reduced cost for presentations too.
