From the start, Minori has been committed to promoting sustainability through mindful consumption. Part of this includes being thoughtful about where our packaging comes from. Intentionality is at the root of our values. We are continuously improving our sustainability practices as the brand grows.
What does the FSC label mean?
On our unit cartons, you will find a Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) label. This mark certifies that the materials used to produce the cartons are responsibly sourced, according to FSC’s comprehensive social and environmental standards.
Minori cartons are made from FSC Mix materials using FSC-certified wood, recycled materials, and/or FSC controlled wood. Though controlled timber is not from FSC-certified forests, it mitigates the risk of materials coming from unacceptable sources. In addition, FSC’s controlled wood standards help address significant problems like illegal logging, human and traditional rights violations, and deforestation.
Ideally, cartons would be made from 100% FSC-certified materials; however, there isn’t enough FSC-certified forest area to meet the demand. Nevertheless, the growing demand encourages forest managers to work toward FSC-certification.
Our shipping boxes are also made from FSC-certified paper.

Look for the logo
You can find the FSC label on all types of consumer products, your coffee cup, a book, or food products. By choosing FSC-certified products, not only are you supporting brands that are committed to sustainability, but you are driving the demand for more companies to become FSC-certified.
