CTI Paper USA Stocks Strathmore Envelopes - the Eco Choice from Manufacturing to Distribution
Press release from the issuing company
Sun Prairie, Wis. (November 8, 2007) - CTI Paper USA and Mohawk Fine Papers have joined forces to increase the availability of Mohawk's flagship paper line, Strathmore. CTI now stocks more than 180 Strathmore Writing and Script envelope items, including recycled and FSC-certified options. Strathmore envelopes are made carbon neutral with Green-e certified renewable wind energy, providing the print and design community the "paper of choice" for companies who want to express their environmental values.
Strathmore papers are the most trusted and comprehensive writing papers on the market, providing everything large and small businesses need to produce coordinated identity programs which are in line with their environmental goals. CTI will offer numerous envelope items manufactured from Strathmore Script, Pure Cotton and Strathmore Writing 25% Cotton, in a breadth of sizes ranging from A-2 through A-10 as well as Monarch and #10 commercial. Envelopes will be stocked and ready for immediate shipment from CTI's Neenah, Wis. warehouse.
Strathmore paper is made carbon neutral within Mohawk's production processes by offsetting thermal manufacturing emissions with VERs (verified emissions reduction credits) and emissions from purchased electricity with RECs (Renewable Energy Credits) from Green-e certified wind power projects.
Strathmore Script 100% PCW (Post Consumer Waste) items contain 100% PCW recycled fiber and are FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified. FSC certification ensures responsible use of forest resources. Maintaining the FSC Chain of Custody (CoC) is a key component to the FSC audit trail structure, which ultimately allows customers to use the FSC logo of forest responsibility within their design projects. In addition, all Strathmore recycled items contain at least 30% PCW recycled fiber, are certified by Green Seal and meet the EPA guidelines for recycled papers.
"As an FSC CoC-certified distributor utilizing 100% wind power for our electricity needs, CTI's environmental commitment is well-aligned with the eco-initiatives of Mohawk," said Brian Cowie, CEO of CTI Paper USA."We are pleased to offer our customers the option to choose Strathmore envelopes and thereby create less air pollution, reduce overall gas emissions and generally benefit our society and the environment."
