ECO COMMITMENT

 

Since the very inception of our company, we have had a clear stand on environmental issues. As we deal in paper which is a natural product, the business needed to be made environmentally friendly and sustainable.

Working on this principle & leading the eco revolution in India, we became the 1st paper company in India to be FSC®-COC certified in the year 2009. Furthermore, we proudly stock the largest collection of eco-friendly papers from suppliers, all of whom are also FSC®-COC certified.

Deeply committed towards the cause of sustainable business, we are proud to say that our entire range supports sustainability and the 'green' business practise as they are eco-friendly. Chlorine-free, recyclable papers & FSC® papers are available on request.

The pH level is calculated from the water extract between 7.5 and 10, and an alkaline reserve (buffer) higher than 2%.
