About Green by Design ® Products
Since the 1930s, Georgia-Pacific Professional and its predecessors have pioneered systems that reduce waste. Georgia-Pacific Professional produces 200 away-from-home products containing 95 to 100 percent recycled fiber and 40 products that help companies earn LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification. Georgia-Pacific Professional works closely with its affiliated recycling company, Harmon Associates, which facilitates the brokerage of six million tons of recovered paper each year.
In 2007, Georgia-Pacific Professional began labeling the environmental benefits of its products using the Green by Design designation. Green by Design-marked products follow the EPA’s 3 R program of reduce, reuse and recycle. Georgia-Pacific Professional labels the packaging for its Green by Design qualified products with seals that designate which of the 3 R’s the product satisfies and how the particular product satisfies the relevant environmental criteria.
