Sustainability starts at the source.
We’re proud to be good stewards of the environment.
For nearly a century now, the Dixie® brand has remained committed to ensuring the continued growth and conservation of our natural resources — a responsibility we take seriously.
Here’s 4 ways we’re making this happen:
One tree is regrown for every tree used.
We play an ongoing role in keeping our forests sound and healthy — allowing them, in turn, to continue providing a range of environmental benefits we can all enjoy.
We use virtually every part of the tree.
Whether it’s using wood chips left over from lumber operations or using the waste from pulping to generate renewable steam energy, we take great pride in making the most of our resources.
We keep track of America’s endangered forests.
We won’t buy wood from these areas except when active forest management is needed to improve the habitats of rare, endangered or vulnerable wildlife like the Louisiana black bear.
Sustainable Forestry Initiative® certified sourcing
In plain English, this means that the wood we use is legally sourced and we use trained loggers who follow best practices for preserving biodiversity and water quality.
