Green Grades 2009: A Report Card on the Paper Practices of the Office Supply Sector
Since 2007, ForestEthics has teamed up with Dogwood Alliance to create the Green Grades office supply report card to inform American consumers and large purchasers of office supply products about which companies’ paper practices safeguard the environment and the world’s forests.
Drawing from a company survey and our own research, the report card rates the office companies on six forest-related environmental measures, including the extent to which they avoid selling paper from Endangered Forests and other controversial sources, and to which they instead promote paper from certified well-managed forests and recycled fiber.

Some of the following companies get A's, some companies fail, and some fall in between: Amazon.com, FedEx Office, Office Depot, OfficeMax, PaperlinX, Staples, Target, Unisource, United Stationers, WalMart, and Xpedx. Get the full story on each company's performance here.
