Why choose recycled paper?

Using recycled paper is a simple decision that can make a great difference. It’s also an easy and clear way to communicate your brand values.

Making your business more sustainable not only saves you money, it can also win you customers looking for companies with green credentials.  

Printing on recycled paper saves trees, energy, water and landfill space compared to non recycled paper. This is because recycled materials have already been refined and processed once. Manufacturing the second time is much cleaner and less energy intensive than the first time. Recycled paper meets the same high technical specification as virgin paper and will run successfully on the most demanding photocopiers and office printers. Print on both sides of the paper to save even more.

It places less strain on global forest resources. Paper recycling optimises the use of a valuable material and reduces the amount of virgin pulp required. Although forests are increasingly managed in a sustainable way there is a need to reduce wastage by using more recycled content.
