|ARJOWIGGINS GRAPHIC ASKS STAFF TO GET CREATIVE TO RAISE AWARENESS OF RECYCLED PAPERS
Staff at Arjowiggins Graphic were tasked with naming their favourite trees in a bid to raise awareness about the benefits of recycled papers
Employees were invited to write about or draw their favourite tree on 9lives paper, manufactured by Arjowiggins Graphic for PaperCo, and create sculptures that represent their favourite trees from organic play-doh. The aim of the activities was to raise awareness of FSC Friday in a bid to support the international event, while at the same time crystallising the importance of recycled papers.
9lives Offset and 9lives Preprint are manufactured from 100% post-consumer FSC certified fibres and offer a high whiteness and outstanding consistency with excellent sheet formation. 9lives 55 and 9lives 80 provide mixed fibre options that use FSC certified virgin fibres as well as pre and post consumer recycled waste. 9lives Digital Silk provides an excellent alternative for use in digital print jobs and is also manufactured from 100% post consumer recycled fibres. The 9lives family leads the way in the recycled paper market and offers excellent alternatives to virgin fibre papers.
The remarkable standards set by 9lives are achieved through market leading technologies that are implemented at Arjowiggins Graphic's mills in France.
The manufacturing process sources 20-30% of its recycled materials from the UK - limiting the impact on landfill sites.
Katie Hungerford, Marketing Communications Manager at Arjowiggins Graphic, comments: "A key element of the Arjowiggins Graphic mission is to enable our customers to easily understand the importance of using sustainable paper solutions. This is one reason why we subscribe to FSC certification: it helps to give consumers clarity on the products that are manufactured from sustainable virgin fibres.
"There is, however, a gap in many people's knowledge about the difference between being FSC certified and recycled. The use of recycled papers ultimately reduces the need for virgin fibres and new technologies now mean that recycled papers, such as 9lives, provide excellent substitutes for virgin stocks. While the FSC certification is an excellent way of supporting sustainable production we should not neglect the additional benefits of recycled products."
