With increasing use of technology to communicate our most important news, it is difficult to ignore the fast growing "Green" movement. CentralStationery.com believes that tradition of beautiful stationery will remain even in the digital age. We believe that it is necessary to reduce carbon footprint and at the same time it is a customary to send a paper invitation. Email will never be as special as receiving a hand-written Wedding Invitations, Birth Announcements or Thank You Notes.
The minimum Post Consumer Waste (PCW) content of the recycled paper accepted at Central Stationery Inc is 30%. We know that more and more customers demand recycled paper and envelopes. The choices and availability will become greater in the coming years and eventually CentralStationery.com plans to carry majority of our products 100% PCW. You, as the consumer, play a huge role in that change. It takes 40% less energy to make recycled paper than virgin paper and that is a HUGE difference.
Recycled paper is the end product of paper recycling. Recycled paper is produced in most varieties with quality generally equal to virgin paper. The production of recycled paper has significant environmental advantages over virgin (non-recycled) paper production:
Reduces the demand on forests
Uses less total energy
Uses less bleach
Produces fewer toxic releases
Reduces waste that would be added to landfills or incinerated into the atmosphere
Has a fiber efficiency rate of more than 70%, compared to 25-45% for virgin papers
