Monadnock Paper Mills, Inc., the oldest continuously operating paper mill in the United States, has announced the expansion of its alternative fiber product line with Monadnock Hemp Envi Performance Board.

The tree-free bright white premium board was developed with a continued focus on both performance and sustainability. The recyclable board is crafted in the United States, is FSC-certified and composed of 30 per cent hemp fiber and 70 per cent post-consumer waste recycled fiber.

“Hemp is an exceptionally strong agricultural fiber that has been used in papermaking for centuries, so who better than our 200-year old company to reimagine its use for the needs of 21st-century brands,” said Julie Brannen, director, Sustainability Solutions, Monadnock.
