Paper and Paper-Based Packaging

The industry’s responsible stewardship of our forests and commitment to sustainable practices are why the U.S. has more forests today than it did just 25 years ago.

They are also a valuable economic resource that renewably provides raw materials for paper, packaging and wood products. To learn more about forests and forestry, click here.
