Campaign promoting Rainforest Alliance Certified^TM products runs September


MONTREAL, Sept. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - Domtar will be joining businesses  and 
individuals around the globe to participate in the Rainforest Alliance's third
annual Follow  the Frog  Week that  kicks off  today, September  16, and  runs 
through September 22.

Follow the Frog Week is a campaign  that encourages shoppers to help create  a 
healthier planet by  choosing products  that feature  the Rainforest  Alliance 
Certified™ green frog seal. This  trustmark, found on coffee, tea,  chocolate, 
fruit, furniture and paper, is recognized by consumers globally as a symbol of
sustainability. Products featuring the seal  come from farms and forests  that 
meet a rigorous set of criteria that protect wildlife, soils and waterways and
the well-being of workers, families and communities.

"We strive to be the  preferred supplier of environmentally responsible  paper 
to our  customers,  while leaving  the  smallest environmental  footprint  and 
helping  them   reduce   theirs,"   notes  Paige   Goff,   Vice-President   of 
Sustainability and Business Communications.  "This is why  it's a natural  fit 
for us  to  participate  in  this  campaign  to  promote  Rainforest  Alliance 
Certified products."

Domtar has worked  together with  the Rainforest  Alliance for  many years  on 
responsible paper  production and  fiber  sourcing. In  2005, Domtar  and  the 
Rainforest Alliance  signed a  collaborative  agreement when  the  EarthChoice 
product line was launched, later renewing the agreement in 2009, and again  in 
2012. Rainforest  Alliance  applauds  the  forest  management  practices  that 
support the  Domtar  EarthChoice^®  product  family.  All  Domtar  EarthChoice 
products proudly bear the Rainforest Alliance Certified seal.
