Why use If You Care FSC & compostable certified unbleached TCF Coffee Filters? Each year more than 30 million acres of natural forests are destroyed by illegal logging and land clearance. The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) promotes responsible forest management through a rigorous, certification system of forests and forest products. When you buy If You Care FSC Certified Coffee Filters you know that the paper is from forests that comply with the most rigorous environmental and social standards. Every year about 80 million tons of waste (U.S. EPA figure) that goes to U.S. landfills is material which could be turned into compost under the right conditions. In landfills, this organic material (food scraps, etc.) releases methane - a powerful greenhouse gas - contributing to global warming. Diverting food scraps from landfill to compost facilities contributes significantly to preserving our planet and natural resources.
