    The main people who produce mixed source paper are the Forest Stewardship Council (FRC). They are a non-profit organization that works towards a sustainable paper supply. The mixed sources label comes from a combination of recycled paper and new wood that goes into the paper. The wood that they use is closely monitored from the time it is planted to the time you are writing on it to ensure that it is being used in a sustainable manner.
