Levi Strauss & Co has confirmed to just-style that it does not source items like paper, product packaging and hang-tags from endangered rainforests.
The confirmation comes in response to a campaign by the Rainforest Action Network (RAN), which earlier this month said Levi's revamped forest products purchasing policy showed it would not be doing business with paper and packaging supplier Asia Pulp and Paper (APP).
