Achieving sustainable development

What does FSC means?

FSC paper means that the pulp for making the paper is made from trees from sustainable forests (maintain the forest/wildlife/water ecosystem). It is completely bio-degradable and recyclable. This means that the paper pulp has been sourced in an environmentally friendly, socially responsible and viable manner. FSC certification tracks forest products from the forest through each stage of processing, conversion, printing and distribution. The Chain of Custody process ensures the greeting cards are coming from responsibly managed sources.

Timber regulation
  • We follow the timber regulation. Paper products come under the EU Timber Regulations (EUTR), which prohibit the importation and use of illegally harvested timber and timber products.

04.

Printing ink
  • We use soya ink (plant base) for printing and water-based sealers as standards. This ink meets the EU REACH standard.

  • This means the printer uses vegetable inks & the environmental benefits of using these are that they are a renewable resource, conserve petroleum supplies, reduce VOCs (volatile organic compounds). At the end of the” life” of the product vegetable inks can be easier to” de-ink” during the recycling process and therefore easier to recycle.
