Neenah Paper (NYSE: NP) has added SUNDANCE® Papers 100 PC White Smooth Finish to its digital papers portfolio, which already includes the SUNDANCE® Papers 100 PC White in Felt Finish. This budget-friendly premium paper is FSC certified and made with 100% post consumer fiber.
Suppliers of tissue and towel products have traditionally focused on the amount of recycled fiber content of these products when making environmentally conscious purchase decisions. The current thinking is: If a product is recycled, then it must be good for the environment, and the more recycled content there is, the better. Certainly, utilizing recycled fiber helps to reduce the demand on natural forests, so it is always good to think about recycling. However, is using recycled fiber the only solution? Are there other strategies that can help us reduce pressure on forests?
A unique collaboration of stakeholders across the paper supply chain including NGO’s, paper producers, paper purchasers and consumer product companies have created a new online resource to enable customers and companies to make more informed decision about the paper they buy and sell.
