The construction of paper requires more than 900,000,000 million trees a year. We need trees to breathe, but we also need paper.
Alternatives to tree paper are available. You can help save our planet, by using Tree Free, pure white sugar cane paper.
This paper is environmentally superior to virgin AND recycled paper but indistinguishable.
It is even better for copiers because it’s produced from sugar cane fiber instead of wood fiber, so dust that commonly builds up in your copier is greatly reduced.
This paper performs beautifully in desktop printers, standard office printers and copiers, high speed duplicators, and commercial printing equipment. It is 80gsm (22 lb), 92% brightness, acid-free for archiving, and comes in standard letter size 8.5” x 11”.
Sugar Paper is made from 80% sugar cane waste, (otherwise known as “bagasse”), and 20% Certified Plantation Fiber it is 100% biodegradable and recyclable.
it does not contribute to deforestation.
It biodegrades faster than regular paper.
It is recyclable, and can be recycled with paper made from trees.
