Great Northern Instore prizes environmental sustainability and doing our part to be responsible in how we create, fabricate and deliver products to consumers. To meet this goal, we have earned certification from the Sustainable Forestry Initiative® (SFI®). This certification shows our customers that we purchase paper from a sustainable source to protect our world’s resources and reduce carbon waste and pollution.

As an SFI-certified company, our products come in packaging that is recognized as sustainable. This distinction is important for customers who want to designate themselves as eco-friendly and are interested in decreasing their ecological footprint.
