What is “post-consumer waste”?

Post-consumer waste consists of the paper products you use and put in the recycle bin (newspapers, cardboard, mailers, etc.) that is sent back to the recycling facility and made into new paper products, like these eco-friendly folders.

Many of our recycled paper stocks also consist of "pre-consumer waste," which consists of paper scraps unused in the manufacturing process. For example, when we cut a folder out of a sheet of paper, the excess from that sheet is recycled back into a new sheet of paper.

Why are soy and vegetable low VOC inks so important?

Low VOC inks (Volatile Organic Compound) are a much more sustainable resource than petroleum-based inks. They come from very renewable resources, causing much less stress on ecosystems and native habitats worldwide.

The biggest health concern with chemical VOCs are the fumes they emit, which can, over time, cause short- and long-term health effects. By printing with soy-based and low VOC inks, we are providing a healthier workplace for our employees and a better product for you.

What's more, when it comes to making your custom recycled folders, we love using soy- and vegetable-based inks because they produce more accurate colors than petroleum-based inks. Paper printed with soy-based ink is also easier to recycle than its petroleum counterpart, which means that when your folders are all used up, they can easily be recycled into new ones.

How to print on environmentally-friendly paper stock

If brand consistency is one of your top concerns, then you'll want to print on any of our white recycled pocket folders. However, we think a forward-thinking, eco-minded company like yours can get away with putting their logo on any color paper stock, from smooth white stock to the popular kraft fiber paper stock. Not sure which folder color will work best for your needs? We can help: send us an email or call us at (800) 346-3063.
