Earth Wise juices

 

Johanna Foods launched its Earth Wise line of juices and juice drinks in aseptic cartons featuring the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) logo, which verifies that the raw paperboard used to make the cartons was manufactured using only wood fibers that can be proven to originate from responsibly managed forests certified according to FSC guidelines, or from other controlled sources managed in accordance with FSC standards. Cartons have environmental benefits, such as being lightweight, having a small carbon dioxide footprint, consuming very few resources, and being fully recyclable, the company says. The Earth Wise cartons also carry the RAC seal of the Rainforest Alliance.
