Paper, Wood Products Industry Celebrates National Forest Products Week

Tuesday, October 21, 2014

Press release from the issuing company

WASHINGTON – American Forest & Paper Association President and CEO Donna Harman issued the following statement regarding President Barack Obama’s proclamation recognizing National Forest Products Week.

“We join with the president in celebrating the hardworking men and women in America who use forests to make products that benefit our lives. National Forest Products Week is an opportunity for each of us to stop and appreciate the importance of the many renewable and recyclable forest products we have come to rely upon for their versatility and convenience. 
 
“From the coffee shop, the cafeteria, office, and restroom, to your home or apartment, paper, packaging, and wood products are contributing to the sustainability of our environment, our economy, and our communities. These products are made from renewable, recyclable resources, using highly-efficient manufacturing processes, and AF&PA member companies are leaders in sustainable practices.
 
“Most important are the nearly 900,000 men and women who make these products and manage the forests manufacturers rely on, without which we would not enjoy the quality of life that paper and wood products give us. To them, we say ‘thank you.’”
