Info about projection
To stop the jungle dying, 25 years ago, an international organization was founded, the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), an association for the certification of sustainable forestry. The FSC seal should show that furniture, paper, decking, flooring etc. were made of “environmentally friendly” logged wood. But what is the ecological benefit of 25 years of FSC?. This investigative film reveals the links between FSC, illegal logging and the expulsion of indigenous people living in the forests.
