For the longest time, we’ve depended on trees as a material source for paper. It is no wonder that the paper industry continues to be one of the leading causes of deforestation. With that comes a rapid decline in biodiversity (Read our blog here on the importance of biodiversity!), with several species being driven to extinction by habitat loss and land clearing activities like burning, logging, and clearances. It doesn’t end there. Illegal logging is also another issue. Indonesia, being one of the biggest suppliers, has an estimated 76-80% of its wood through illegal logging. , because of this, lush tropical rainforests are replaced by pulp plantations, disrupting the natural ecosystem!
That is a FANTASTIC question. Well, for starters, we don’t cut down any trees in making our paper or packaging products. We use agricultural waste that would otherwise be burned on the farms in Pune, India. Not just that, but we are committed to the SDG Goals of No Poverty and Decent Work and Economic Growth, so we make sure that we are paying our workers well, whether that be in the office or in the factories. At envoPAP, our actions are conscious of our environmental or societal impacts. We are also constantly reviewing our systems to ensure that we are using less energy, less water, and creating less pollution. (Check out our certifications on our Company website here.)
The envoPAP team has decided to undertake the challenge of revolutionizing the paper and packaging industry to ensure that we are all using more sustainable methods. We’ve only just started with reaching out to businesses, but we are also trying to empower individual homes, offices etc. Through that we are raising awareness of individual responsibility towards our environment and our world. This is a journey that we must all take together! Join us at envoPAP!
