Why Use Readymade Recycled Gift Wrap?
Benefits of manufacturing recycled papers:
Conserves our forests
Requires less water
Saves on landfill space
Requires fewer chemicals and bleaching materials compared to virgin paper products
Decreases air and water pollution
Benefits of soy and vegetable-based inks:
- Soy ink can be removed more easily than petroleum-based ink during the de-inking process of recycling. This causes less damage to its paper fibers.
- The waste left from the soy ink during the de-inking process is not hazardous and can be treated easily.
