Paper Procurement

Scholastic is dedicated to responsible stewardship of the environment in all of our paper procurement practices, and while we aim to inspire a love of reading and learning in kids everywhere, we endeavor to produce materials responsibly. Our paper procurement policy extends purchasing preference to those products and suppliers that exhibit superior environmental performance, and that align with our goals.

The majority of Scholastic Book Clubs catalogs, which offer top-quality books and reading materials on a monthly basis to teachers and students in pre-school through high school, are now printed exclusively on FSC-certified paper.
