Does the SFI EcoLabel Approve Forest Destruction?

I recently attended Eugene, Oregon's famous environmental law conference. In the entryway on the bottom floor of the building where the conference sessions were being held, there were a series of environmental organizational tables including TarSands Blockade, which is using non-violent direct action to stop the construction of KeyStone XL, and Forest Ethics, a national non-profit working to protect our forests. A giant banner hanging above the Forest Ethics table caught my eye. It said, "SFI: Certified Greenwash".

The GreenSure seal was created by Sherwin-Williams for their paints. They state that the optimal green coating should do two things: minimize the impact on the environment and deliver maximum performance. So they've developed the GreenSure® designation to help their customers identify the products that meet their highest green coating standards. They use sustainable raw materials, like soy and sunflower oil in their paints. They've reduced the amount of solvent in their formulations, so their green products are more environmentally friendly. New techniques in their manufacturing processes have helped produce less waste and they've implemented energy efficient methods in their plants. They've streamlined national distribution processes, helping to conserve fuel, energy and other natural resources. They've formulated many of their coatings to clean easily and to resist mold or mildew growth on the paint film thus helping to improve the indoor and outdoor environments.
