A large portion of our paper purchase ($31,039.60), is for paper that is EMAS, EU Ecolabel Certified. The paper brand name is UPM. The paper package states that it is made of renewable resources, recyclable, and biodegradable. However this paper is not produced in the United States so it is EMAS, EU Ecolabel Certified rather than FSC Certified. We have included this in the FSC Recycled portion of the report.
