GLRPPR Sector Resource: What Green Means to Legion Paper (Eco-friendly Paper Classification System)

Title:
What Green Means to Legion Paper (Eco-friendly Paper Classification System)

Abstract:
Legion Paper, a leading supplier of fine art paper, has launched a eco-friendly paper classification system that organizes each paper into five categories: Alternative Energy, Chlorine-Free, Handmade Papers, Mill Certification and Tree-Free. Most of the green discussion in relation to the paper industry has focused on wood-based and/or recycled products, according to Legion. This leaves out many important products including 100 percent cotton papers, papers made from cork, mulberry, and handmade papers  all of which do not require the cutting down of trees in the first place.
