Blake launches Environmental month

Blake, the paper, envelope and postal packaging company has launched their environmental month highlighting why recycled envelopes are kinder to the environment.In an industry that makes heavy use of a natural resource like wood Blake thought it important to stimulate discussion and talk about why recycled products are good to use. A typical office worker uses up to 45 sheets of paper per day, of which over half is considered waste.  77% of wasted paper in offices is high grade and recyclable so purchasing recycled products has a direct impact on the environment.Recycled products help save energy, conserve water*, prevent environmental pollution and save landfill sites. Blake will be doing their bit on social media and via direct mail to customers to educate people about the benefits of replacing virgin paper products with recycled.Blake’s range of recycled envelopes include the highest quality, whitest recycled envelope in the world from the Premium Pure range. 100% recycled and FSC, Blake Premium Pure paper and envelopes are manufactured using bioenergy and without chlorine bleaching; the high whiteness (CIE 160) is achieved through a special converting process of the recycled fibre. They also supply the most environmentally friendly padded envelope on the market, the Blake Purely Packaging EcoCushion, 100% recycled and the only padded mailer with an expandable gusset. Completing their range are over 55 types of other recycled products, all of which are 100% recycled and have FSC Certification. 100% of their products - recycled or not - comply with the EU Timber Regulation (2013) that prohibits the importation and use of illegally harvested timber and timber products in EU countries and 40% of their products are FSC Certified with some products also carrying the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC).* The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has found that recycling paper causes 35% less water pollution and 74% less air pollution than making virgin paper.www.blake-envelopes.com
