October 24, 2011

Green is the way to go and the Forest Products Research and Development Institute (FPRDI) is doing its share to help in the global effort of “greening the planet”.

One such contribution is FPRDI’s involvement in the national ecolabelling program, which certifies products and services based on environmental standards. Such standards ensure that consumer goods are produced and disposed of using ecologically safe procedures. With this national program, the buying public is guided in choosing products that are environmentally safe.
