A Closer Look at recycled papers
When it comes to paper communications, recycled paper is the greenest option, it uses less energy, water, and produces lower carbon emissions than the manufacturing of non-recycled paper and at the same time reduces the amount of waste to landfill – as paper can be recycled 4 to 5 times..

TONERS AND INKS
Our digitally printed newspapers use toner made by Xeikon with 100% certified green energy and contained in fully recyclable containers. It is free from solvents and VOCs (volatile organic compounds), is odourless and food-approved. It is also de-inkable, meaning the newspaper can be completely recycled to create new newsprint.
Solar panels at our print warehouse generate over 100MWh of electricity per year producing enough power to print all our newspapers.
SHIPPING YOUR NEWSPAPERS
Every newspaper is packed inside a brown paper A4 Envelope which can be recycled in your recycling bin at home,.
Why we DO NOT USE shipping labels.
Can paper with ink be recycled? Yes, as the ink is removed during the recycling process. The paper pulp is put into a chemical solution and blasted with air bubbles.
