The State of Vermont is using Rolland Inc. New Life DP 100,
a certified PCF [processed chlorine-free] paper that contains
60% pcw [post-consumer fiber by weight] (80% total recycled
fiber) with 20% virgin fiber that is TCF [totally chlorine-free --
post-consumer fiber may have been originally processed
with chlorine bleach]. This sheet has no old growth virgin fiber,
the virgin fiber is TCF, the mill has no environmental permit
violations and the virgin pulp comes from sustainable forestry.
There is not a cleaner greener sheet we can find today that
compares. It is also priced competitively. Contact Robert Boivin
at 800-567-9872 at Rolland, or Steven Meyer at 800-917-1100
at Lenaro Paper, or Caryn Esko at 800-942-8817.

If you want more information on PCF papers visit our web site
