Paper merchant Spicers Paper has developed a new publication, which encompasses environmental credentials, green paper samples and environmental product specific information.
The company says its publication, The Green House, will provide a better way for printers, designers and end users to choose environmentally friendly papers.
Spicers claims the development of The Green House was prompted by consumer demand for both forest certified and recycled stocks within the Australian market.
Richard Collins, national marketing manager at Spicers Paper says environmental papers are quickly becoming regarded not as an alternative but as the norm. Collins says, “We devised The Green House to help designers, printers, and end user corporate specifies make informed, accurate choices.”
He adds, “It does not rate or rank papers it simply presents pertinent, detailed information and allows customers to select the right paper for their specific requirements.”
A selection of Spicers’ product range is categorised according to their environmental credentials - Recycled, Environmental Certification (FSC, PEFC, and eco-labels), Renewable Energy, and Carbon Neutral.
Spicers claims with samples of every environmentally qualified paper in its range made easily assessable, designers can compare stocks quickly and easily.
Collins says, “Printers will find that the depth of information, such as each mill’s environmental management systems, aids them when marketing themselves to government departments, green groups, and corporate end users.”
The company has labeled its 9Lives 80 gloss and silk paper as one of its most environmentally friendly products, which incorporates the accreditations FSC, TCF and ISO 1400.
Collins concludes, “The Green House provides users with all the information they require in a single, handy location. As an innovative, creative, and educational resource, it is an important piece in Spicers Paper’s campaign.”
