Sustainable Paper Products

Sustainable paper products are made from recycled materials and are usually fully compostable or recyclable. Paper products can include cups, plates, napkins, toilet paper and bags.  The use of paper from certified paper companies ensures minimized impacts from logging, milling, and other steps in the paper supply chain. Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) and Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI) are the most common certifications.

Why this Matters

For My Organization

Sustainable paper products are an important way for organizations to be environmentally responsible. When you purchase these products, you are helping to reduce waste and pollution in your natural environment. Employees and customers will notice too.

For New Orleans

Purchasing sustainable paper products reduces waste and pollution from manufacturing synthetic materials. Non-biodegradable products are diverted from landfills and the environment.
