South African FSC Certificate Holders hold events to celebrate International Day of Forests
Mpact Paper’s Felixton Mill in KwaZulu-Natal got into the spirit of celebrating International Day of Forest. They put together a beautiful and thoughtful display with a forestry video playing and a special poster designed for the occasion with the assistance of FSC South Africa. They ran a campaign from the 18th to the 25th of March with various competitions and gave away 12 fruit hampers (with Mpact branded items) and a number of consolation runner up prizes at special prize giving with Mill Manager, Louis van Dyk on the 24th of March for the lucky winners. A big thank you to Annalie Sauer, Mill Chemist and her support team for organizing the events.
