Favini launches unique eco-paper

Italian paper manufacturer Favini introduced at LuxePack (October 2012) a range of ecological and fashionably coloured papers with a unique touch made from the waste by-products of variety of organic materials: Corn, citrus fruit, kiwi fruit, olives, almonds, hazelnuts and coffee beans.

Called Crush, it is claimed to be the first and only range of packaging papers made from these organic by-products which replace as much as 15% of traditional wood pulp.

The new paper is FSC certified, made with 100% green energy (the electricity is generated in Favini’s own hydroelectric plant) and contains 30% post-consumer recycled fibre.
