We substitute our paper materials as part of our work with the environment

 

The United Nations International Year of forests officially began on the 1st of February 2011. The aim was to raise awareness about the importance of trees in our world, and why we need to properly manage and conserve all types of forests - from the rainforest to your local woodland.
As an on-going project we are continuously substituting our paper materials by more environment friendly and energy saving packaging and other marketing materials. After our awareness about the importance of trees in our world, we decided in 2010 to find new solutions, focused on the environment, with our cardboard boxes. Therefore our new cardboard box is produced from recycled paper** and FSC* certified wood. To use paper recycling reduces the total number of trees that are cut down to make paper and can reduce overall demand for wood. But more importantly, paper recycling saves forests.

**By substituting used paper for trees, recycling reduces the overall intensity of forest management needed to meet a given demand for paper, and the pressure to convert natural forests and ecologically sensitive areas like wetlands into tree plantations. With recycling, not only will fewer trees be harvested to make paper, those trees that are harvested can be produced using methods that have less impact on the environment.
Therefore, recycling paper helps preserve the full range of values that forest ecosystems provide, including clear water, wildlife habitat and biodiversity.
