Boise Paper is #FORESTPROUD
Are you #forestproud? Boise Paper is, and proud of it. #forestproud is powered by the North American Forest Partnership, a community of diverse, passionate and innovative forest stewards. As a company that produces Paper with Purpose™ right here in the USA, Boise Paper is honored to be a part of #forestproud. We recognize the importance of North American forests and are committed to making choices that keep them strong and healthy.
What Forests Do For You
#forestproud is a diverse community of forest stewards responsible for shaping the future of North America’s forests. It includes hikers, hunters, land owners, family businesses, conservation and recreation organizations, universities, government agencies – and yes, paper manufacturers. As a community, we are committed to the responsible management of our forests so that we can continue to benefit from all that our forests have to offer.
Just think about how forest touch every aspect of your life. From the air you breathe, and the clean water you drink, to the products we rely on everyday – like paper! We all benefit for forests every day and we all have a reason to be #forestproud.
Why Boise Paper Supports #forestproud
Using forest products helps maintain and grow forests. With less demand for wood-based products, forest landowners can face economic pressure to convert their forested land to other uses, like parking lots and shopping centers. Healthy markets for forest products ensure forests continue to grow to meet demand for today and tomorrow. As a producer of American-made forest products, Boise Paper is #forestproud because we are committed to making choices that keep forests as forests. Our renewable, recyclable, and biodegradable paper not only provides sustainable alternatives to other materials, but it helps us plant more trees and keep our forests healthy.

When COVID-19 disrupted the world in March 2020, everyone was forced to alter their typical routines. What initially started as a two-week lockdown turned into our “new normal;” and even when the world gets back to business post-COVID, many changes to how we work are expected to last.
When we think about giving back, our minds often gravitate toward causes that require cash donations. Money is always helpful. But giving back to your community during the pandemic can be much more rewarding and fun if you step a little outside of the box.
Many people have committed to the basics of sustainable living – consistent recycling, limiting single-use products, driving less to regulate gas use, etc.
When we think about quality, we often think about how well or poorly something is made. With paper, that’s partially true. The manufacturing process is important in creating a quality sheet, but what’s more important in determining total quality are performance and outcomes – how well-suited a paper is for what you need to accomplish.
