One of our top priorities is our commitment to the environment. It’s a fact that all manufacturing processes have an impact on the environment. The goal is to minimize that effect, and continue to find new and better ways to improve even more. We have upgraded our technology and processes regularly in order to be an environmentally friendly company.
Eco Conscious. To whiten our pulps, we do not use any processes that produce dioxins. Our products are made primarily from cotton and natural fibers; so we don’t create any of the dioxins and other byproducts that typically result from wood pulping processes.
We use a gentle bleaching agents process – which is environmentally gentle, with virtually no pollutants resulting from our production processes.
Recycled Materials. In truth, we can’t “label” our product as recycled – at least not by the government’s standard, since they require that materials be recycled from the consumer before earning the status of “recycled.” Still, we do turn what would otherwise be waste and landfill into a usable product.
Our basic raw material is cotton scrap – which we purchase primarily from the textile and garment industries. This scrap is what’s trimmed off and thrown away in the making of jeans, tee shirts, and other cotton products. Without our involvement, these industries would send millions of pounds of scrap to landfills every year. Instead, we purchase as much as we can use, and turn it into a usable product for paper manufacturing.
Save the Trees – and the Planet. Because we use cotton and other specialty fibers to create our pulps, we don’t cut down any trees. Not one. This leaves more trees to clean our air and keep our planet healthy.
In addition, cotton fibers require fewer chemicals in the production process than wood-based pulp does … plus, the resulting paper is more durable and of higher quality.
Energy Efficient. Finally, our latest equipment upgrades not only produce superior pulp quality … but also save on energy consumption and reduce production waste.
