celebrating our nation’s forests

This week GreenBlue joined the president in celebrating our 54th National Forest Products Week.

President Eisenhower signed the first proclamation September 15, 1960, calling on the people of the United States to “observe the week beginning October 16, 1960, as National Forest Products Week, with activities and ceremonies designed to focus attention on the importance of our forests and forest products to the Nation’s economy and welfare.”

The world’s forests protect our environment, economy, and way of life. GreenBlue has a long history of collaborating with the forest products industry to protect and conserve this critical natural resource. And with National Forest Products Week coming to an end, we’d like to say thanks to all of the organizations and individuals that have worked with us this year to identify opportunities and create solutions for continuously implementing sustainable materials management practices further into the forest and paper products industry.
