LFF encourages law firms to avoid paper products from unsustainable sources, such as Reflex paper made from the needless destruction of Victoria’s magnificent Mountain Ash forests and home to the critically endangered Leadbeater’s Possum. Its easy to chose sustainable papers instead, such as Fuji Xerox Recycled Pure and J.Burrows 100% recycled.
Learn more about Japanese-owned company Australian Paper that manufactures Reflex from woodchipping Victoria’s native forests.
LFF also encourages law firms to chose an energy retailer that guarantees power from renewables and firmly rules out sourcing electricity from burning native forest products (also called “biomass” power). We recommend Powershop.
Reduce overall use of paper:
In 2002 Lawyers for Forests published the below eco-kit for law firms, detailing how your firm can improve its environmental sustainability. The Guide is still an excellent tool for law firms today, but product advice (paper, energy and investment) within the Guide is now outdated.
