Elementree Printer Paper

Most people believe in order to be more sustainable “we need to use less paper”.  However, the truth is that to be more sustainable, it’s not about using less paper – it is about using the right paper.

As a manufacturer of paper products, we believe paper is sustainable. Although current environmental claims such as “Go Green, Go Paperless” say otherwise, we recognized the importance of developing a sheet that was even more sustainable for daily use.

Introducing the new choice for everyday printing – Elementree Printer Paper®. You can Print Wisely® with Elementree – it is a low cost, low impact sustainable printer paper.  Made from residual sawmill waste chips, no new trees are harvested.  And compared to standard copy paper, the papermaking process . . .

It’s where sustainability meets affordability. Since we are consuming less natural resources and using all of the wood material, we are able to provide you with a more affordable and sustainable sheet of paper!

50% More Paper

Since the paper making process uses ALL of the wood material, it yields fifty percent more paper from the same amount of wood as compared to standard copy paper.  This also means that Elementree paper contains more organic material which lends to a more natural shade (similar to paperback books) that is easier on the eyes.
