The paper that is used is Neenah Paper’s (NP)
ENVIRONMENT®. Among its attributes and benefits are
1. Carbon Neutral. Neenah Paper is committed to
reducing our carbon footprint through investments in
energy conservation and renewable energy resources.
Each time a computer or vehicle is turned on
greenhouse gases are added to the atmosphere. This
is because most of the energy consumed comes from
the combustion of fossil fuels. Carbon Neutrality is
defined as the removal of carbon dioxide (CO2) and
other greenhouse gases from the atmosphere mentioned
in the Kyoto Protocol.
2. Chlorine Free. ENVIRONMENT® paper is made without
the use of chlorine, which under normal conditions
and in its natural state is a toxic gas with a
yellow-greenish color. It is used in the production
of plastics and other items of industrial origin.
NP manufacturers its ENVIRONMENT® paper with
chemical compounds that have a lower concentration
of chlorine, which makes them less toxic.
3. Green-e Certification. ENVIRONMENT® paper from NP
is Green-e certified, which is the nation's leading
independent certification and verification program
for renewable energy and greenhouse gas emission
reductions in the retail market.
