Orange, CA (PRWEB) August 14, 2008
Natural Source Printing (NSP), an FSC Certified and Carbon neutral source for sustainable, eco-friendly printing, packaging, and marketing materials has introduced FiberStone™ Papers- a line of tree-free, low carbon footprint papers. NSP has been producing labels, unit cartons, POP displays, casepacks, brochures, catalogs, annual reports and high quality pressure sensitive labels on the stone paper material.
FiberStone™ Tree-Free papers come from an abundant renewable, sustainable resource- limestone.
Mary Loyer, President of Natural Source Printing states, "Our vision is to help companies achieve their environmental and sustainability goals. As companies embrace greater responsibilities for environmental concerns, they are seeking resources to help them along that path. Adding FiberStone™ Papers to our vast list of green materials further cements our commitment to providing our customers with the most comprehensive menu of FSC, recyclable and green solutions in the industry."
Loyer adds, "More and more green conscious companies are focusing on sustainable and low carbon footprint materials. Our own unique FiberStone™ Tree-Free Papers have a carbon footprint that is at least 1/3 that of virgin paper, half that of recycled paper. Loyer explains that the production of FiberStone™ Papers uses no water in processing, no trees, no chemicals, and very little energy to produce."
Right now calcium carbonate is used as a whitening agent for regular virgin and recycled paper, but people have discovered that it can replace virgin or recycled paper altogether. To the touch, it feels like a regular coated paper. And because it doesn't require water to manufacture, it saves more than just trees.
Reduce, Recycle, and Renew have been key features of NSP's products. Other examples are their re-pulpable, recyclable Fiberboard POP displays, biodegradable plastic bags, and 14 lb. recycled paper shipping palettes.
