New 80% Recycled Paperboard Gives Luxury Packaging Designers a Sustainable Choice
Monadnock Paper Mills, Inc. announces new Envi by Monadnock, a premium, high quality, line of environmental packaging grades designed for folding boxes, luxury shopping bags, set-up boxes, tubes, price tickets, and hang tags. First to be introduced in the line is Envi Folding Box Board (FBB), an 18 point single-ply uncoated paperboard ideal for packaging applications in fragrance, cosmetics, gourmet food, wine, spirits, and entertainment. Made in a bright white shade and featuring exceptional surface uniformity for remarkable print clarity and fidelity, Envi is made with 80 percent post-consumer waste (PCW), one of the highest recycled content level currently available in the market for single-ply, high-caliper uncoated paperboard. Envi by Monadnock is FSC chain of custody certified under the chip and fiber standard. This guarantees that the fiber contained in Envi is sourced responsibly and can be traced through every link in the supply chain. Envi not only leaves a smaller environmental footprint than conventional paperboards, it also prints beautifully - something that has not been lost on customers wishing to improve their eco-profiles. "I am very pleased to see that Monadnock Paper Mills is joining the ranks of fine paper mills that will be providing folding board stock to the packaging industry," said John A. Delfausse, Vice President, Package Development, Estee Lauder. "The Envi choice with post consumer recycled content at 80% and with FSC certification bring our options to a new level. Their dedication to this type of innovation, with a commitment to the environment is very welcome." In addition to recycled content and FSC certification Envy by Monadnock is manufactured carbon neutral using 100% renewable electricity and is manufactured under the strict guidelines of Monadnock's certified ISO 14001Environmental Management System.
