Recycled Content

Suggest an Edit

Create more demand for recycled packaging by creating three new end markets for recycled materials by 2020.

Responsible Fiber Sourcing

Suggest an Edit

Our long-term intention is that all wood, paper, paper-based packaging and wood-based fiber used in products that we purchase and sell is sourced from well-managed forests that have been credibly certified and/or are from post-consumer recycled materials. When certified or recycled materials are not available, Target will work with its suppliers to ensure they are meeting policy requirements.
