Look for the PEFC label

One of the simplest ways you can help protect our forests is to look for the PEFC label on products. Next time you go to the supermarket or DIY centre, look around! It may surprise you just how many products carry the PEFC label…

Look for the PEFC label

You can find the PEFC label on a huge range of products, from tissues, toilet paper and notebooks, to wooden flooring, bookshelves and your garden shed. And of course, don’t forget the packaging: tea bags, cereal, rice, and so much more, are all available in PEFC-certified packaging.

The PEFC label helps you make a simple choice: choosing a beautiful product made from a natural, renewable resource - supporting our forests and helping them to flourish! 


What does the label mean?

When you see the PEFC label on a product, it means that it comes from a PEFC-certified forest (obviously, only the forest-based material within the product). A PEFC-certified forest is a forest that is managed in line with the strictest environmental, social and economic requirements. A forest that will be around for generations to come.

Through PEFC certification, we can track the material from these forests, down the supply chain, to the final product that you buy. The mechanism to track the material is called chain of custody certification. Beyond ensuring that the material comes from a certified forest, it also protects the rights of workers along the production process.

Did you know that you can even use the PEFC label to find out more about the company that made the product? If you look under the logo, you will see a string of numbers - type these into our ‘Find Certified’ database and see what you find!
