Our paper suppliers, have operations in North America that are certified by both FSC (Forest Stewardship Counsel) and SFI (Sustainable Forestry Initiative). These dual certifications ensure that our virgin paper fiber is responsibly sourced and processed.
All of our paper waste is pre-sorted for recycling. Every paper fiber in all of our facilities that is not sent to the customer gets sorted and recycled. This means that the wrappers covering the rolls of paper to the waste paper that comes off the press to the paper cores that hold the printable paper gets recycled.
In addition we collect the return copies of many of the publications we print for recycling. These extra copies could easily be thrown into the waste stream and land-filled, but we believe it is important that we can guarantee to our publishers that these return copies are being recycled properly.
All of our 30# newsprint contains recycled Post Consumer Waste (PCW). Where available, the PCW recycled content is as much as 100%.
All of our recycled paper is Processed Chlorine Free. The paper has not been re-bleached with chlorine containing compounds. These compounds are considered less harmful to the environment due to the reduction of environmental impacts associated with chlorine and chlorine compounds which significantly reduce a product's environmental impact.
Last year, over 65% of the paper we purchased contained Post Consumer Waste fibers. With all of the recycled paper we purchased, we saved over 139,000 trees from being cut. We prevented 14,205,298 lbs. of CO2 emissions entering the atmosphere by recycling all of our paper waste.
