Forest Certification

In theory certification is a good idea, but it is tricky in practice. It
occured to me that instead of (or as well as) issueing a certificate to
the forest -> product, the FSC/TGA give a rated award to the retailer on
the basis of how well they are ensuring their products are
environmentally sound, (and perhaps a black mark award for the least).

Carrot and stick, rather than an open or close door.
