Recycled Paper and packaging board was a boon 10 years ago, but demand for commercial print is falling and recycled pulp is being redirected to many other applications.
Why the change? Well we believe the recycling process could be one challenge, it delivers an inferior product for a higher price.
Interestingly, had you considered European forestry has grown in the last 10 years?
Between 2005 & 2015 European Forestry has increased by 44000 square kilometres an area the size of Switzerland! (https://www.twosides.info/european-forests/)
This is a result of many forestry programmes being put in place to develop how the industry works, with printing a small part of it, but all the paper and packaging board we use here at Short Run Packaging is from managed, sustainable forestry. In essence ‘tree farms’ grown specifically for the paper/packaging industry which contradicts a common belief that some how rainforests are being used for paper production, certainly not the case in the UK and Europe.
So what if we could not only demonstrate the paper we use is from managed sources grown specifically for the purpose, but we can also offer a Carbon Captured (Carbon Neutral) option which means the paper we use has zero carbon impact on the environment?
Welcome to the Carbon Capture Scheme from Short Run Packaging, we have a license to provide Carbon Captured (carbon neutral) paper/board for your packaging should you so desire, the cost is a small premium added to the paper which enables you to use our license and logo on your printed material as Carbon Captured packaging.
This delivers the best of all options, a great quality paper/board, zero carbon impact from the production and corporate responsibility for your organisation with very little work for you.
It also creates a marketing opportunity and competitive edge should you need one.
