About Recycled & Eco Friendly Print Products
Introducing our range of Recycled Paper Products
Our range of recycled paper print products are made using Evolution Digital Uncoated. This is a smooth, 100% recycled paper for digital print applications; the perfect choice when producing environmentally conscious printed communications.
The CO2 emissions from every sheet of Evolution have been mitigated through Premier Papers Carbon Capture® programme, directly supporting the work of the Woodland Trust – the UK's leading woodland conservation charity.
What is the Woodland Trust?
The Woodland Trust has three key aims: i) to protect ancient woodland which is rare, unique and irreplaceable, ii) to restore damaged ancient woodland, iii) plant native trees and woods with the aim of creating resilient landscapes for people and wildlife.
What is Carbon Capture?
Carbon Capture is a scheme run by the Woodland Trust for organisations to offset their CO2 emissions and reduce their overall carbon footprint. It creates native woodland in the UK, provides habitats for wildlife and green spaces for all to enjoy, and demonstrates the values of that organisation towards a responsible approach to the environment.
How does it work?
The average amount of CO2 emitted from the manufacture and distribution of a tonne of paper has been calculated by the Woodland Trust using Carbon Trust and DEFRA figures. An organisation elects to Carbon Capture their paper purchases and the amount is shown as a separate line on invoices. 100% of the Carbon Capture charge then goes directly to the Woodland Trust to plant native woodland in the UK.
What's been achieved so far?
As of January 1st 2022, 66,712 tonnes of carbon have been captured and over 266,000 trees have been planted with the £1.1M raised from this scheme so far. As more companies embrace their environmental responsibilities, it is hoped that millions more will be planted over the coming decade. Just 13% of the UK is currently covered by woodland compared to a European average of 37% and so there is a long way to go!
What is John E Wright doing to help?
John E Wright signed up to the Carbon Capture scheme in January 2020 as part of a renewed effort for a new decade to minimise the company's impact on the environment. All of our printing on paper of any kind will generate funds for the scheme. This will be used to plant trees and offset carbon emissions generated in the manufacture of the paper. The company will also be getting involved in the tree planting by providing volunteers on special mass tree planting days. The company will provide staff, transportation to site and any tools required for the day.
