All around the world, forests are under pressure from development and harvesting. Recycled paper is a good solution, but what if paper could be made without using any trees at all? Sugar Sheet paper is made from the waste fibre generated from sugar cane processing. The paper is bright white, high quality, elemental chlorine free and completely recyclable. (And of course, it’s available at London Drugs!)
Sugar Sheet is suitable for use in inkjet printers, laser printers, copiers and even high quality offset printing presses. Best of all, the price is competitive with other high quality and recycled paper options.
By the numbers, Sugar Sheet is a more sustainable choice.
Sugar Sheet is produced for Social Print Paper Ltd., a Canadian company based in New Westminster BC whose goal is to minimize dependency on global forests to make paper. The paper is made in Columbia from a material that would otherwise be discarded or simply plowed back into the ground, so it does not have any adverse effects on food production.
To better understand its footprint, Social Print has produced a Life Cycle Assessment on Sugar Sheet paper, comparing GHG emissions and tree savings vs regular and recycled paper options. Greenhouse Gas Emissions for Sugar Sheet are 29% lower than even 100% recycled content paper, and 1 tonne of Sugar Sheet saves 26 trees compared to the baseline (0% recycled uncoated freesheet)
So if you want to print AND save trees at the same time, your sweetest paper choice is Sugar Sheet.
