FSC 100% label Products made from natural sources of pure paper pulp, endorsed with a label confirming the source as 100% FSC certified material.
FSC mixed sources label Products made from both well-managed and other controlled sources of paper pulp endorsed with a label confirming the source as FSC mixed sources.
FSC mixed source recycled label Products made from both well-managed and other recycled sources of paper pulp, endorsed with a label confirming the source as FSC mixed sources with the recycled content.
FSC recycled label Products made from a percentage of recycled, Post-Consumer Waste (PCW) or Post-Consumer Recycled (PCR) sources, endorsed with a label confirming the source as recycled and the percentage content of PCW.
A bit of back ground PCW and PCR are different labels for the same process. Post consumer waste is recycled waste paper after you have used the paper and put it in the correct bin for collection and recycling.
PCW and PCR waste is understandably confused with the now discredited term "Pre-Consumer Waste". This refers to the sweepings and waste trim from converters and from the mill floor that are reintroduced into the pulp.
