I am trying to establish the acidity of paper produced with the FSC labels and any help regarding this would be greatly appreciated. I am interested in figuring out the lifetime and decay of this paper. Thanks.

    This is not about writing. You might get better answers on Graphic Design SE, or at the FSC site itself. us.fsc.org/en-us Jun 6, 2016 at 15:57

    IMHO, publishing questions, including materials, are on-topic here. (although as far as I can tell this one specifically seems mis-aimed). That being said, @LaurenIpsum is quite right that other sites may be better venues for questions like this.

FSC 100% means that all the wood in the product comes from FSC-certified forests.

FSC Recycled means all the wood or paper in the product comes from reclaimed material.

FSC Mix means at least 70% of the wood in the product is from FSC-certified material or recycled material; and 30% is controlled wood.

As far as I can tell, the FSC label tells you something about where the materials came from, but nothing about the actual quality of the paper. "FSC 100%" paper would presumably have exactly the same qualities as non-FSC paper made from non-FSC wood, and using precisely the same process from that point on.
