Unfold the Future: Your Sustainable Paper Source


Unfold the Future: Your Sustainable Paper Source

In today’s world, sustainability is gaining increasing importance. Consumers are becoming more conscious of how their choices impact the environment, leading businesses to opt for more sustainable products and services. The printing industry has made significant progress in this area, with Snap at the forefront of sustainable printing options, offering high-quality paper choices that stand out in terms of sustainability and quality.

But what exactly is sustainable paper?

It’s paper that is produced using sustainable practices, such as utilising recycled materials, managing forests responsibly, and reducing water and energy usage.

Making sustainable choices is crucial for a better future for several reasons. Firstly, eco-friendly paper is produced using environmentally-friendly practices that minimize the negative impact on the environment. By using recycled materials, the demand for new trees to be cut down is reduced, while responsible forestry management helps preserve forests for future generations.

Another reason to choose eco-friendly paper is to align with conscious branding. As consumers become more environmentally conscious, they seek businesses that share their values. Using sustainable paper can express your commitment to a sustainable future, making your business more attractive to end-users who are looking for eco-friendly options.

Furthermore, the use of sustainable paper has driven innovation in the printing industry, leading to the development of new technologies and processes that further reduce the environmental impact of printing.

So what are some of the best sustainable paper choices available? 

Snap has a few favorites that are sure to impress.

Shiro Echo, made from 100% post-consumer recycled waste, is considered the top choice for businesses with a strong corporate environmental policy. It’s ideal for sustainable printing and environmentally-friendly packaging, making it an excellent choice for various uses, from book printing to invitations and swing tags.

Tree Free has been a pioneer in papermaking with zero impact on forestry for over 20 years. With an improved recipe and a refreshed range, including a new 380 gsm weight suitable for tags, cards, and packaging, Tree Free uses 25% cotton linters and 75% bamboo. It’s made from a renewable annual crop and yields high-quality fibers that give a smooth, natural, and soft-to-the-touch finish to the paper, making it an excellent choice for luxury packaging, brochures, and more.

Crush is an eco-friendly range of papers that replaces up to 15% of virgin tree pulp with process residues of organic products. Crush paper includes by-products from citrus fruits, grapes, cherries, lavender, corn, olives, coffee, kiwi fruits, hazelnuts, and almonds, making it a unique and vibrant choice. It’s suitable for all uses, including luxury packaging, brochures, stationery, tags, cards, and labels.

Finally, there’s Alga Carta, the paper created from algae that previously damaged the fragile ecosystem of the Venice Lagoon. Favini patented the production process capable of using algae to produce ecological paper according to the principles of circular economy. Alga Carta is recyclable, biodegradable, FSC™ certified, and made using EKOenergy, the renewable energy self-produced in our hydroelectric plant. It’s an ideal choice for any creative, publishing, and packaging project, with visible seaweed particles on the surface giving it a unique natural look.
