L.L. Bean Dumps Verso
Last month, L.L. Bean declined to renew its long-term contract with Verso Paper because it wants the paper used in the 250 million catalogs it ships each year made under certified sustainable forestry practices that contains more recycled fiber content, The Boston Globe reports (via Forest NewsWatch).
According to the article, Verso is a leader in sustainable forestry practices, but has fallen behind on certification.
“In 23 years, we have met all the conditions of each L.L. Bean contract,” Cohen said. “Verso Paper has a sustainability policy and practice in place, and we’re proud of it and we will continue to work with those customers that buy paper from us to be sure we meet their specifications and requirements.”
