Recycled Logo Symbol
The chasing-arrows logo communicates that a paper product is both recyclable and made entirely from recycled material. The symbol should be accompanied by a legend identifying the total percent (by weight) of recycled fiber. For example: 100% Recycled Fiber or 30% Recycled Fiber.

Environmental Calculator Symbols
Olmsted-Kirk is linked to the Wausau Paper Eco-Calculator. It allows users to instantly calculate the environmental savings achieved by using paper made with post-consumer fiber as well as the savings from using paper made with 100 percent renewable energy. Symbols for wood, water, energy and waste can be used in creating customized savings reports for annual reports and other print projects. Information on how to use the symbols is included in the Symbols Toolkit.
FSC is an independent, non-governmental not-for-profit organization established to promote the responsible management of the world's forests. Products carrying the FSC label are independently certified. This is a chain–of-custody certification. All parties in the supply chain taking legal ownership of the product must be certified in order for the finished material to bear this logo. The printer is the last link in the chain-of-custody, therefore they are the only ones that can get the FSC certified logo for your project.
