Athens Paper and the Environment
At Athens Paper we recognize that everyone has a personal responsibility to help preserve and sustain the world’s natural resources. As a wholesale paper distributor we work closely with both manufacturers and environmental groups to ensure papers we sell come from well managed forests that have been independently certified for environmentally appropriate, socially beneficial and economically viable forestry practices.
We are proud that all of our divisions have the following certifications:
- Chain of Custody Certified by the Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) – View Certification
- Sustainable Forestry Initiative® (SFI®) – View Certification
- Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) – View Certification
Our sales professionals are well versed to help our customers match up their environmental requirements with papers that perform well. Whether you require recycled content, paper made utilizing Green Energy, products that are Elemental Chlorine Free or manufactured Carbon Neutral, Athens Paper has the solution.
We are also proud to be one of the first suppliers of wide format products to offer a full line of paper alternatives to plastic and vinyl. This includes banner material, back-lit, wallpaper, poster paper and rigid substrates. In addition we are franchised distributors for HP latex inks and latex printers, proven environmental alternatives to solvent and eco solvent inks and printers.
