Zero Waste

We use the whole tree.

As the world’s leading producer of high-yield hardwood pulp and high purity cellulose, we know a thing or two about getting the most out of the precious resources we use to make the everyday materials people need. That’s why we upgraded our newsprint equipment to do even more with the materials from our lumber operations, and to provide our customers with a clean, strong food packaging sheet that also meets their sustainability goals.

The smart choice

Consumers are getting smart about sustainability. So are we.

Renewable, recyclable, compostable, clean: Envirosmart™ is the natural next step for your sustainable packaging needs – and our planet.

  • The natural look and feel end-users want; the durability packagers need.
  • Ideal for vivid graphics and branding.
  • Made in a modern facility for superior uniformity, reliability and runnability.

Safe, sustainable, certified

Where does plastic come from? Petroleum. Drilling for oil displaces populations, disrupts ecosystems and contaminates our water when there’s a spill. Only 9% of plastic is actually recycled (and when it is, it loses most of its purity and quality).4 Plastic is shiny, it’s convenient, but the “big picture” isn’t pretty.Glass takes one million years to decompose in the environment.5 And while it may be endlessly recyclable (in theory), a lot of resources go into harvesting sand from riverbeds and seabeds, where microorganisms live and thrive. Fragile, bulky… we’ll “pass” on glass.It’s no wonder consumers want paper. And with EnvirosmartTM, paper packaging has never looked better.
