What paper pulp do you use when making paper?
The paper is made from 100% de-inked pulp. The pulp is produced at the leading provider of choline free pulp in Europe and is based in France, with 20% of the post-consumer waste originating from the UK. The pulp is made with post-consumer mixed office waste paper which would otherwise have gone to landfill. To be credited as being recycled all of the pulp for the paper must be reused material.
This mill is ISO9001, ISO14001 and FSC certified.
Is it already pulped? Where is it sourced?
The pulp is provided to a sister mill in France which is ISO9001, ISO14001 and FSC certified and it here that the actual paper is made.
What is the process for turning it into wrapping paper? What about the ink ?
The paper is made as very large reels and then cut to certain usable sheet sizes. These sheets are then lithographically printed using vegetable oil based inks to provide the finished product.
Is it possible to recycle this wrapping paper to make new wrapping paper?
All paper that is suitable for recycling can be recycled a certain number of times before the paper fibres become too short. Generally paper can be recycled up to about 5 times.
It is also worth pointing out that wrapping paper that goes for recycling must be free of any sticky-tape and without any foil or glitter, so remember to remove this before you put it into the recycling bins.
