The Naked Truth: Newspapers have no packaging; no PET, no BPA, no glass, no aluminum, no cardboard, no foam, no tape.
Our product is the news – what’s going on in the world and in our neighbourhood, created by professional journalists – on newsprint – and online.
Wood is the most abundant renewable material on earth. Paper is renewable, recyclable, biodegradable and sustainable.
Newspapers have long been recognized as an integral part of any democratic process and the public’s right-to-know. In providing this public benefit, they make a significant contribution to public education on waste diversion.
A large portion of the newsprint produced worldwide is based on mechanical pulp (a by-product fibre, which remains after sawmills have optimized the cutting of logs into lumber) and increasing amounts are made, partly or entirely, from recovered fibre, such as old newspapers and old magazines. Depending on the type of mechanical pulp used, some chemical pulp may be added to strengthen the sheet.
