100% Recycled Paper Printing.

Printing on recycled paper has immense environmental benefits. When you print with us, you can take satisfaction in knowing that your business, invitation, book or card has been printed using 100% recycled papers, that in turn can be recycled again. 

Our house stock is manufactured carbon neutral and contains the highest possible percentages of recycled content and sustainably harvested papers, processed without the use of chlorine or chlorine derivatives (bleaching without chlorine or chlorine compounds results in a much less polluting paper making process).

Why Use Recycled Paper?

It takes 24 good-sized trees to produce a ton of virgin fibre paper. It takes 1.1 tons of waste paper to produce a ton of 100% recycled paper.

Paper that's 100% post-consumer waste uses about 75% less water in production than its virgin-fibre counterpart.

Producing recycled Kraft pulp requires a third less energy than making virgin chemical pulp. (Kraft = process for creating strong paper)

Paper that's carted away to the landfill decomposes and ultimately emits methane gas, which traps up to 25 times more heat than carbon dioxide over a 100-year period.

Does Recycling Paper Use More Resources?

No, it does not. Recycled paper is better for the environment than virgin paper. It helps preserve forests because it reduces demand for wood. It also conserves resources and generates less pollution during manufacturing, because the fibres have already been processed once. This results in less air and water pollution also.


The 100% recycled paper we utilise at Moorgate Print Products features long fibres, which are more flexible for the recycling process (as opposed to a paper like newsprint, with its shorter fibres, that usually reserved for making low-quality items.
