Collecting and converting recycled paper means that it is more expensive to produce, but the use of post-consumer content means less waste is sent to landfill and the removal of chlorine products from the production process makes it kinder to the environment.
  • FSC certified paper. Forest Stewardship Council certification gives the option to choose products like paper that have been sourced in an environmentally-friendly, socially responsible and economically viable manner. FSC was founded in 1993 in response to concerns about deforestation.
