A Fully Sustainable Coated Paper Choice – Astrolite PC 100 Velvet

Astrolite 100% PCW Coated Paper

100% Recycled PCW Coated Paper

Astrolite PC 100 in Velvet finish meets the needs of sustainably-focused brands, designers, printers, and packaging converters, who are also in search of high-quality graphic reproduction. The only premium coated 100% recycled sheet made in America, Astrolite PC 100 Velvet is coated on both sides and completely crafted with only post-consumer waste recycled fiber. 

According to the Environmental Paper Network Environmental Calculator, the environmental impact of using 1,000,000 lbs of 100% post-consumer waste recycled paper, like Astrolite PC 100, means that the savings will equal out to 4,000,000 lbs of wood being saved from harvest. That is the equivalent of 12,000 trees that can stay growing in our forests, just by using a 100% post-consumer recycled sheet of paper like Astrolite PC 100 for your business needs. 

When considering sustainable first solutions, don’t forget to ask where your paper comes from. Astrolite PC 100 is produced in the USA. Purchasing domestic-made paper means that fewer resources are used up in shipping and handling, lowering the carbon impact of the products you purchase and use.
