STONE PAPER

TONER_Lime.jpg

OUR ADHESIVE LABELS ARE MADE OUT OF A STONE PAPER.  WHY THE NAME?  IT IS COMPOSED OF 80% CALCIUM CARBONATE WITH A SMALL QUANTITY (20%) OF NON-TOXIC RESIN (HDPE).  THE CALCIUM CARBONATE IN THE PAPER COMES FROM LIMESTONE COLLECTED AS WASTE MATERIAL FROM EXISTING QUARRIES FOR THE BUILDING AND CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY.  THIS IS THE EQUIVALENT OF WASTED SAWDUST AT A LUMBER MILL.  THE PAPER IS FABRICATED WITH CLEAN PRODUCTION PROCESS WHICH DOES NOT USE WATER OR EMIT TOXIC AIR.  IT IS CHLORINE FREE, ACID FREE, AND SAFE FOR THE ENVIRONMENT.  IT'S PRODUCTION CAUSES NO AIR POLLUTION, HAS A VERY LOW CARBON FOOTPRINT, AND USES NO BLEACHING CHEMICALS.  THE PAPER CAN BE RECYCLED WITH PLASTIC.  IT IS ALSO PHOTODEGRADABLE.
 
WHY DO WE USE THIS PAPER INSTEAD OF REGULAR PAPER?  IT IS NATURALLY WATER RESISTANT (INSTEAD OF NEEDING TO BE LAMINATED).  IT IS ALSO NON-TOXIC AND LESS WASTEFUL THAN REGULAR PAPER WHEN COMPARING RESOURCE USE, WASTE, AND ENERGY CONSUMPTION DURING MANUFACTIRING.
