Most recently, Habitat for Humanity Canada joined the tree-free paper revolution by choosing 80% tree-free Step Forward Paper™ !
Habitat for Humanity provides low-income families with access to affordable homeownership. Since 1985, over 2,700 Canadian families have realized affordable Habitat homeownership. The Habitat global network is active in over 70 countries and has served over 1 million families through a number of housing services!
“At Habitat, we’re very much focused on improving the lives of the children of families that move into our homes. Providing them a healthy home and solid foundation to grow is essential, but also is ensuring that we hand them down a clean environment for their and future generations. For that reason, we couldn’t be happier that Step Forward Paper has enabled us to achieve greater operational sustainability.” –Derek Mletzko Manager, Marketing & Communications – Habitat for Humanity Canada
