Canopy, Prairie Pulp & Paper (PPP), and Offsetters have worked together to produce what the group refers to as an unprecedented life cycle study of the greenest paper option – alongside properly 100 percent recycled papers – available to Canadian consumers.
The report, available for download, focuses on Prairie Pulp & Paper’s Step Forward product, a recently introduced wheat straw copy paper made from 80 percent straw and 20 percent stock certified by the Forest Stewardship Council. The report itself compares Step Forward Paper to other copy paper types sold in North America.
The retail launch of Step Forward, currently available on the shelves at every Staples store in Canada, is described by Prairie Pulp & Paper, based in Manitoba, as “phase one” of its plans to develop and commercialize tree-free pulp. “Phase two” will include constructing a 100 percent tree-free pulp mill in the Canadian prairies where millions of tons of leftover straw are readily available.
Offsetters is a Vancouver-based carbon management solutions provider, while Canopy, also headquartered in Vancouver, is a non-profit organization deeply involved with fostering new paper manufacturing that relies on agricultural residue, such as wheat-straw.
Canopy is inviting companies that want to help build the market for agricultural residue paper to complete a survey found at the following link.
